Celebrate a Weekend of Hearthstone at the Spring Preliminary

Celebrate a Weekend of Hearthstone at the Spring Preliminary

Update: added list of stream channels for the event.

Innkeepers from across Europe and as far as South Africa have heard the call for more Hearthstone! From May 13-15, we’ll be celebrating a weekend of card-slinging, and you can get involved in the fun at a number of new locations.

The action begins on Friday, May 13, as players battle it out in the Spring Season Tavern Heroes Tournament. The top 32 finishers will then join 128 of Europe’s best-ranked Hearthstone players in the Spring Preliminary on May 14 and 15.

All of the below-listed venues will be open to the public, so come along and watch the action unfold, have a duel or two with other fans, and enjoy some of the side events lined up for attendees. Many venues are still hosting Tavern Heroes Qualifiers, so you can try to earn a place at the Tavern Hero Tournament on May 13—check out our Fireside Gatherings page to find one near you.
