Players of “Magic: The Gathering” and “Magic: The Gathering Arena” can soon compete across seven Mythic Championships to reach the Magic World Championship, Wizards of the Coast announced on Wednesday.

The 2019 season kicks off Feb. 22-24 with the first Mythic Championship in Cleveland, Ohio. Winners of each Mythic Championship will get a slot in the Magic World Championship and have the chance to compete against the defending Magic World Champion, the top four performers from the Magic Pro League, and the top four from Challengers for a $1 million prize pool.

Fans can tune into all of the tournaments on the “Magic: The Gathering” Twitch channel.

Wizards of the Coast is also planning a Mythic Invitational exhibition tournament next month. It will feature MPL players, some of “Magic’s” most popular streamers, and top players from “Magic: The Gathering Arena. It takes place during PAX East Mar. 29-31 in Boston and it will also broadcast live on Twitch.
