Grand Prix New Jersey

ChannelFireball is returning to the Northeast this March, so join us for Grand Prix New Jersey! Standard will be in full swing with Aether Revolt in the mix, and GP New Jersey will be the perfect time to innovate and shake up the metagame. If Standard isn’t your format of choice, don’t worry – we’ll have plenty of Limited going on in the Side Events area, and those who prefer to play Constructed in smaller doses can pick up a Fanatic Pass and play Standard, Modern, or Legacy all weekend. There are plenty of other reasons to spend Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with us – after all, you’ll need time to get cards signed with the artists, browse the wide selections of our vendors, meet and battle our sponsored Pro Players, and more. The main event has a max capacity of 2,500 players, so preregister now to secure your spot!

Playmat Information

Official Grand Prix Magic Playmat

Our Grand Prix events always feature exclusive Ultra PRO playmats with beautiful art, and Grand Prix New Jersey is no exception! The Grand Prix New Jersey playmat features Greg Opalinski’s art for Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, a new card from Aether Revolt!

There are four ways to get your hands on this exclusive playmat:

  • Purchase the Main Event Package, a Fanatic Package, or a VIP upgrade
  • Play in an Early Bird Last Chance Trial, launching on Friday between 10 AM and Noon
  • Play in the Foiled Again Bounty Event, starting on Friday at 5 PM
  • Redeem Prize Tix at the Prize Wall, while supplies last

And yes, that means you can get more than one playmat!

Events Schedule

Not interested in the main event? Can’t make the start time? Want to play other formats? No problem! ChannelFireball is working on an amazing Side Events Schedule so you can play Magic all weekend!

PTQs ARE BACK!


Things didn’t go as planned in the Grand Prix? You still have a chance to get on the Pro Tour this weekend in our Pro Tour Qualifier at 9:30 AM on Sunday. Maximum capacity is 256 players, so preregister now, start preparing for Sealed Deck, and compete for a shot at the Pro Tour. You’ll also receive a GP Playmat and GP Promo with your entry.

Due to the high demand and low capacity for this event, we ask that you drop prior to 10:00 pm (22:00) on the Saturday (March 11th) of Grand Prix New Jersey in order to receive a full refund.

NEW Double-Up Events!


Every day, we’ll offer Double-Up events in Standard, Modern, and Legacy. These events will feature twice our normal prizes for a side event, with the entry fee set at LESS than twice the price! If that wasn’t enough value for you, we’re giving each player that enters a Double-Up Event an exclusive Progenitus Grand Prix Promo!

Meet the ChannelFireball Pros!

Grand Prix New Jersey will feature a group of ChannelFireball’s sponsored professional Magic players who will be on hand to enhance your GP experience! You can meet the pros at the following events on Friday:

Friday, March 10th

Bounty Event

5:00 PM

On Friday evening, we’ll be hosting the Foiled Again! Bounty Event, a four-round Sealed Deck Event where you can win Prize Tix and foil promo cards based on your record. Some of our pro players will be entering the event as well, so we’ve put a bounty out on them! If you get paired against one of our sponsored pros and you win the match, you’ll receive extra Prize Tix to commemorate your victory.
