    == League Challenge - Same Day! ==

    Seats for the League Challenge - Cosmic Eclipse S2 (to be held later on the same day) will be available in-store during this League Cup.

    == Format ==

    This tournament will follow a Standard (Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism onward) format. (See "Standard Format" further below for more information.)

    This is a Premier event, so players can earn Championship Points toward a 2020 World Championship invite by placing well.

    == Parking ==

    Free parking is available near the venue.

    == Registration ==

    Register online NOW: https://player.rk9labs.com/register/19-12-000119

    We are capping this event at 80 players due to fire code. To enforce this, we are REQUIRING pre-paid online registration. The registration fee is $11 per player across all divisions, online payment ONLY.

    Refund requests are allowed through Thursday, 26 December 2019, 11:59pm ET. NO REFUNDS will be given after this point, even if a registered player does not show up at the event.

    == NEW: Online Decklists! ==

    At long last our League Cups now require ONLINE DECKLISTS! These must be submitted between Monday December 23rd and 10:00am EDT on tournament day.

    Players are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the decklist creation and submittal process sooner than later. Instructions are provided upon registration, or see the "RK9 Labs Decklist Creator" link under "More Info" for all the details.

    == Check-in ==

    Check-in will start at 9:30am and end at 10:00am. You *must* register online prior to check-in. Please ARRIVE BY 9:30am to check-in. We're serious.

    Players arriving after check-in closes may be added to the tournament with a first round loss. Seating WILL NOT be guaranteed for any players (including those registered) arriving after round one begins. Players WILL NOT be added after round one has ended.

    For more information about late player registration, please see the Tournament Operation Procedures, p. 4, § 3.1.3: https://assets.pokemon.com/assets/cms2/pdf/play-pokemon/rules/play-pokemon-tournament-operation-procedures-en.pdf

    == Standard Format ==

    The following expansions will be used for this event:

    Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism
    Sun & Moon—Forbidden Light
    Sun & Moon—Celestial Storm
    Dragon Majesty
    Sun & Moon—Lost Thunder
    Sun & Moon—Team Up
    Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu
    Sun & Moon—Unbroken Bonds
    Sun & Moon—Unified Minds
    Sun & Moon—Cosmic Eclipse
    McDonald's Collection 2017**
    Black Star Promo Cards: SM94 and higher

    For Hidden Fates: Cards from the core set are legal for this tournament. Cards from the Shiny Vault subset are legal only if they are reprints of cards from Ultra Prism onward.

    Cards from each new expansion will become legal on the third Friday of the same month the expansion was released.

    Promo cards such as those found in Pokémon TCG Boxes and Collections will be legal on the first or third Friday of the month after the product is released.

    ** Starting with the 2020 season, cards from McDonald's Collections will be legal in the Standard format if they're functionally identical to a card that is currently legal in the Standard format. For example, Magnemite (McDonald's Collection 2018, 8/12) is functionally the same card as Magnemite from Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism, so it can still be used in the Standard format.

    == Tournament Start Time ==

    The tournament is scheduled to begin at 10:30am. You are responsible for being present for check-in and all rounds.

    == Rounds ==

    Play will be single game swiss rounds (30 minutes + 3 turns) with a top cut of 8 players (60 minutes, best 2 out of 3). Please bring a 60 card standard deck (Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism onward), a matching deck list, a pen with a cap (recommended), damage counters, and a (tournament legal) coin or die.
