Halo World Championship 2017 Qualifier: Mexico City - Event updates, FFA information & more
Calling all competitors! The Halo World Championship is making its next stop in Mexico City – the first ever official open HaloWC or HCS event in Latin America! Today, we’ve got some updated event details for you, FFA information, and more. Let’s dig in!
Updated Team Pass & Spectator Ticket Pricing
We’ve recently announced even more affordable prices for both team passes (£60.00) and spectator passes. Additionally, both team and spectator passes will grant you access to Friday’s FFA event as well as a free gift – an exclusive HaloWC: Mexico City event t-shirt.
We’re also excited to announce that similar to past events, we’ll be offering free (REQ item here) to all players and spectators who purchase a team pass! Simply provide your gamertag at registration, and you’ll be all set.
Additionally, all players and spectators will receive 3 Gold REQ Packs for Halo 5: Guardians just for attending the event!
Lastly, the event is now open to players 16 and above, as long as a parental consent form is signed. For those who purchase a pass, Gamelta and Gfinity will be reaching out via email with information on how to submit your parental consent form.

On Friday, February 24, we’ll be hosting an open FFA (Free-for-all) tournament with a prize pool of $1,500. All players and spectators are welcome to compete, and simply need to register on Friday morning (doors open at 10AM CST) at the event, and don't forget to bring your controller. In addition to the FFA, all team pass holders will also be able to utilize warm-up stations on Friday to prepare for the 4v4 event on Saturday and Sunday. As a note, the official HaloWC Mexico City live stream will kick off on Saturday, February 25, and Friday’s FFA, warm-up, and preview events will be limited to participants on the show floor.
Additionally, we’re excited to be offering a Free Agent Area in the venue on Friday. FFA players and spectators will be able to meet fellow local players and assemble a team for the weekend. Lone wolves, unite!
If you can’t make it out to the event, be sure to join us all weekend long on Twitch.tv/Halo and Beam.pro/Xbox on Saturday, February 25 and Sunday, February 26 for all of the 4v4 action. At the end of the weekend, only one squad will be left standing – the team that will represent their region at the Halo World Championship Finals. Don’t miss it!
We can’t wait to hang out with the local Halo community in Mexico City. We’ll see you there!
