Join us for the Americas Summer Preliminary!

Join us for the Americas Summer Preliminary!

What better way to escape the heat of summer than to head to your local Tavern to watch and play some Hearthstone! From August 19-21, we’ll be inviting players from across the Americas to participate in the Hearthstone Championship Tour’s Summer Preliminary, and you can join them to cheer them on and perhaps duel with some fellow players.

The action begins on Friday, August 19, as the winners of the Tavern Hero Qualifiers battle it out in the Summer Season Tavern Hero Tournament. The top 32 finishers will then join 128 of the Americas' top-ranked players in the Summer Preliminary on August 20 and 21 to determine who will participate in the Americas Summer Championship and a chance to qualify for the Hearthstone World Championship at BlizzCon!

All of the venues listed below will be open to the public, so come along to watch the action unfold, have a duel or two with other fans, and enjoy some of the side events lined up for attendees.
