——————UFGT9 Early Bird Registration is now OPEN——————
The registration fee, also called the venue fee, is a one-time cost that every player must pay when entering any number of tournaments or coming to play games casually in the bring-your-own-console area. Entering one tournament, or six, still only costs you the venue fee one time. The venue fee goes toward paying for the event hall and other costs, while the tournament fees themselves go 100% directly into the prize pool for each game.
The earlier you register, the more money you’ll save. Registering early also helps the Tournament Director plan the event with more information, allowing the schedule to be much more accurate.
Early Bird Registration ($30) – Starts Feb 12th, Ends Mar 10th
Normal Registration ($35) – Starts Mar 11th, Ends May 5th
Late Registration ($45) – Starts May 6th, Ends May 19th
Emergency Registration ($60) – At the event during Emergency Registration Hours only. Only tournaments that have available byes will allow emergency registrants to enter, and only before a tournament’s first pools start, as the brackets will already be made at this time. You cannot and will not be regionally or skill seeded if you are an emergency registrant. Avoid this option at all costs.
Spectators and Casual Gamers – Spectators are allowed inside the venue at no charge, but any person playing video games in the venue, even if they are just casuals in the Bring Your Own Console area, will need to have an event badge. Casual-only event badges will be sold at the emergency registration table for $15.
