Halo World Championship returns to Gfinity in 2017


We are delighted to be welcoming the world’s elite Halo 5 teams back to the Gfinity Arena, for the Halo World Championship 2017. 


As announced by Microsoft this morning, in 2017 we will host the EU Halo World Championship 2017 Qualifier: London at the Gfinity Arena from February 17th-19th. We will once again host both online and Open LAN experiences, with the weekly online tournaments used to seed the Open LAN event.

In addition to Europe, we will also be partnering up for the LATAM/South America region. Qualifications will feature weekly online tournaments that lead up to the Mexico City Open LAN tournament, where just one team will make it to the main event. There’s some truly incredible talent just waiting to make their mark, but who will get their chance?
