Yu-Gi-Oh! Organized Play Events Canceled in North America

Konami's refusal to deliver product (or any cooperation) to Upper Deck has led to the cancellation of Yu-Gi-Oh! Organzied Play events hosted by the card manufacturer

Upper Deck announced that all future Organized Play programs and events in North America for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TradingCard Game have been canceled. The unavailability of product and prizes affects all upcoming North American Yu-Gi-Oh! OP programs and events, including Shonen Jump Championships, Regional Qualifiers, the National Championship and the monthly Hobby League program.

For months, Upper Deck has continued in good faith to support Yu-Gi-Oh! OP, so as not to abandon the player and retailer community of which it has been an integral part for six years. Upper Deck remains committed to the Yu-Gi-Oh! community and will continue to fight Konami’s actions in court. Upper Deck hopes to once again be able to offer Duelists the high caliber events to which they have become accustomed.
