Welcome to the one and only Force of Will AGP in 2019 - now back up North in the home of UK Force of Will, Manchester's Fan Boy Three.
New Valhalla Cluster
Force of Will is on a bit of a rise at the moment - numbers increasing globally. But that means a lot of the newer players don't have easy access to older cards.
Entry: £20 on the day (£17.50 pre-registration)
Doors Open: 9:00 Player Meeting: 9.45 R1 start: 10:00 R2 start: 11:15 R3 start: 12:30 R4 start: 14:00 R5 start: 15:15 R6 start: 16:30 R7 start: 17:45
We are expecting 7 rounds of Swiss, followed by a Top 8 cut. We'll be aiming to finish the Swiss by 6.45pm, with a view to starting the T8 cut no later than 7.00pm. What can I say - it's going to be a long day!
Fan Boy Three 25 Hilton St Manchester M1 1EL ENGLAND
Fan Boy Three is situated in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter - literally minutes from Piccadilly, Victoria or Oxford Road train station.
There are a load of car parks just off Newton St as you come in off the ring road.
Flying in to Manchester Airport? We are fifteen minutes away, close to Piccadilly Station. But if you miss the stop, we're also close to Oxford Road and Victoria too
There are also A LOT of hotels. For the budget conscious, there are multiple hostels on our street
Fan Boy Three is located in the heart of Central Manchester a few minutes walk away from both Manchester Picadilly Train Station, the Tram and Bus stops at Picadilly Gardens and the Coach Station situated on Chorlton Street. It's about a ten minute walk from Victoria Train Station, situated on the far side of the world famous Arndale Centre.
There are more food based outlets within a five minute walk than I can list off the top of my head, but a personal favorite is a small place called Pie Minister, they preach the truth, which is Pie is great.
Of course, the main draw here are the invites to the World Championships in Japan. SO NATURALLY FORCE OF WILL REMOVED THEM.
I know, what can I say? There is still ONE unpaid invite. So what we have agreed to do is for every player over 32 we get at this event we will put £20 into a prize fund, to be paid as a bursary to get our winning player to the World Championships.
But I am personally gutted. Cedric is gutted. Chris and Jem are gutted. But I promise you, we will still have a great event. And we'll still be looking to support Force of Will in the future
