The United Kingdom will be holding VGC Regional Championships this Spring, with the first tournament being in Sutton Coldfield on April 18. This is the first time in the history of Pokémon Organized Play that the United Kingdom has held Regional Championships for the video games.
Although these tournaments will be a regular part of the VGC circuit this year, attendance to the Regional Championships is not required in order to attend the United Kingdom National Championships, which are being held from May 30 to May 31 in Manchester at EventCity, whereas attendance at a Regionals tournament is a requirement for Nationals in North America.
The first tournament being held in Sutton Coldfield on April 18 will cost £5 for Juniors and Seniors and £10 for Masters. Players must preregister by emailing their player information to the tournament organizer. The tournament will follow 2015 VGC format. Further information can be found on the event's Facebook page.
