What's a Pre-Order?

A pre-order is when you make an order and complete payment before ticket sales begin. If you pre-order, we will buy your tickets as soon as sales open. Read more about pre-orders!

If the tournament you want is already open for pre-orders, use the Shop button to make your order. If it's not open yet, use the Register Now button to be notified when we open.
