Anyone else just feeling like some more STARCRAFT? "We'll just do a nice sensible Spring Championship" turned into getting carried away into another $7,000 edition of the event, coming at you in three stages : the Pre-Party, the Preliminaries and then the Main Event!
While the main event will follow a similar system to last years Spring Championship, we will run the build up events in a different manner.
AS ALWAYS ALL DATES ARE TENTATIVE AND MAY CHANGE DUE TO OTHER EVENTS AND SCHEDULES - THESE DATES ARE PURELY AN OUTLINE FOR THE EVENT.
