The CATAN Championship in the United States

The United States 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 States National Championship.

CATAN Studio will host the 2023 United States Championship September 16-17, 2023 in Minneapolis, MN. Qualified players will receive formal invitations beginning April 2023.

Players at the National Championship face off against all other winners of the Qualifier tournaments to become the year’s CATAN United States Champion.

Every two years CATAN Studio sends the United States National Champions to the CATAN World Championship tournament. The 2023 United States Champion will compete in the 2024 World Championship, location and date TBD. The United States champion will also compete in the Americas tournament, a new event taking place in the off-years from the World Championship. We will share details for the 2023 Americas Tournament as soon as possible.

The 2022-2023 Season is CLOSED to new event submissions. We’re looking forward to the largest Nationals ever in Minneapolis this September! Congratulations to our qualifier winners and best of luck to our remaining qualifier players!
