The CATAN Championship in the United Kingdom

Our United Kingdom tournament consists of local qualifying tournaments that take place year-round. The winners of each of the tournaments win a seat at the CATAN United Kingdom National Championship, which is held in late May or early June at the U.K. Games Expo in Birmingham. Players will face off against all other winners of the Qualifier tournaments to become the year’s Catan United Kingdom Champion.

The next United Kingdom National Championship will take place 31 May – 2 June, 2024 at UK Games Expo in Birmingham.

Qualified players will receive email communication from Organized Play with instructions regarding their attendance at UKGE. 


Every two years the Champions are sent to the CATAN World Championship tournament. The next CATAN World Championship will take place in 2024. The United Kingdom champion will also compete in the European Championship, taking place in the off-years from the World Championship. The 2023 European Championship will take place 28 October – 29 October, 2023, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

If you have any questions about CATAN Organized Play, please email op@catanstudio.com.

NOTE: All participants must be residents of the United Kingdom and be 18+ years of age by the date of Nationals. You should be able to prove residency with an official ID card and/or a piece of mail (such as a utility bill) sent to a United Kingdom residential address.
