PuyoGB’s First Irish Event Draws Near!

A mere 11 days from now the Celtic Throwdown event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown, Dublin. This 2 day event covering the 31st of August and 1st of September is one of Ireland’s biggest competitive gaming events. Casual or competitive, there are plenty of free-to-play set ups that anyone can hop on to, as well as many tournaments to enter.

PuyoGB will be hosting two double elimination tournaments ourselves, one on each day both starting at 1pm. Saturday we’ll be hosting a Puyo Puyo Tetris Swap Tournament and on Sunday we’ll be hosting a Puyo Puyo Champions Tsu Tournament, which will both be run on Nintendo Switch. Top 3 in each tournament will get prize money (60/30/10 split) along with all participants getting some Sega merchandise! So if this interests you then you can purchase tickets and sign up for tournaments here: https://smash.gg/tournament/celtic-throwdown-2019/events. Sign ups close on August 23rd at 12pm BST, so hurry before it’s too late! We’d love to see the Puyo (and Tetris) players of Ireland take part in our first Irish convention! As well of course the people who can make the trip outside of Ireland.

Travel information can be found on the Celtic Throwdown website linked at the start of the article, and now to nab the travel information BlueHairKei said in his article….

Travel Information:
For international players who aren’t part of the UK, the EU, the EEA or Switzerland, you will need to check what entry requirements you need when entering Ireland. Many countries will not require a visa to enter Ireland (e.g. USA, Japan, Australia), but please check with the Irish Embassy in your country.
For UK players making the journey, because the UK and Ireland are part of the Common Travel Area (which is not governed by the EU), you can travel freely between the two countries even without needing a passport. However, we advise to travel with a passport if you lack a valid photo ID (e.g. a Driver’s Licence).

We’ll see you there!
