Need-to-Know Information

1. During Registration, Open Your Account Page

Open your account page on your mobile device (if possible) during registration to help us keep things quick.

2. Arrive On Time

You must arrive by the tournament start time to enter. We cannot add new players to an event once it begins. If you're running late, contact the host.

3. Stay Aware of Your Belongings

We do everything possible to ensure a safe environment, but can't be held responsible for lost or stolen goods. Keep your gear close by!

4. The Tournament Will Last At Least a Few Hours

This event is likely to last at least a few hours. If you can't commit to the entire tournament, you're welcome to come watch and play for fun instead!

5. Listen For Your Username To Be Called

Your name will be called when it's time for your next battle. If you need to leave early or take a break, tell a judge. Missing a match could mean disqualification! I disagree

Yes! This event is actually on my birthday so I get to spend it doing what I love!
Are there age limits or catagories. My 6 year old just got into beyblades and wants to come wasn't for sure since he is so young

Of course not! Beyblade is for all ages and there are no age categories.
One last question is it 25 dollars on top of the convention ticket

It's not determined just yet. Probably in April. If you have any questions about tournaments unrelated to BEYBLADE NORTH, feel free to post them here: https://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Toronto...st-Seeking
Ughh...., it's my brothers birthday that day....(can't say i'm not happy for him but there's NO WAY my brother is going to let us go, there's an even less chance that I'll be allowed to go there my self)
Hey, TSO Wombat, Yami ect. Do you know if you're coming to this event this year?

None of us will be attending this year.
I was hoping to be able to make it this year but now I guess next year
I got fourth last year, still triggered I didn’t get to top 3 cuz Cho-Z VAlkYriE yeeted me out of the stadium😂 I’m gonna come back and aim for top 3 this year! Good luck everyone! I look forward to seeing y’all at the best tournament of the year! :3

Not if my dH Op' godly meme has anything to say about it lol. Our points for Shougastu got yeeted out the window so let's see if we'll win them back. Can't wait to spend a good time with my friends at this event. I've suffered from supreme boredom over the past two months so having something to look forward to is good.
Dang, if I were more in favor of traveling, or had some method of teleporting, I'd attend this. An 80 person tournament sounds like it's going to be awesome.

I hope everything still goes as plan and we're able to still have Beyblade North happen still too far away to see, but I'm also aiming for Top 3! By the time the event happens if it still does Brave Valkyrie/Satan and all the previous releases will have been released and time to practise with em!

How about the virus 🦠
How will we have tournaments

We are continuing to monitor the situation, as is Anime North. It's too early to tell, but as of this moment the tournament and convention will be continuing as planned. If that changes, we'll definitely post an update.
Two months to go lol.
Hello everyone, I just received some unfortunate–but unsurprising–news that Anime North 2020 has officially been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that this event has now been cancelled.

For those of you who have already purchased tickets, Anime North has stated that nobody will be paying for the event this year. All attendees will have the option for a full refund or a roll-over to 2021.

I do not have all of the details for this myself and they may be posting how this will work soon, but I encourage anyone who has already purchased tickets to contact Anime North directly.

I'm really sorry for everyone that was looking forward to this. I have been helping to host our events at Anime North for over ten years now, so having to skip this year is a huge disappointment for me personally as well. But I'm sure everyone will agree that the health and safety of us all comes above everything else right now. I hope you all continue to heed the advice of the Canadian government and stay home unless it is absolutely necessary to leave until this pandemic passes.

I sincerely hope to see all of you next year at Anime North 2021! Stay safe.
