#BSF2016

USA/Ohio Regional Qualifier: Badges to Origins Game Fair is required to enter the fair and participate in the event.

Due to issues with the previous location, Bushiroad Spring Fest 2016 Malaysia Qualifier has changed its location to Dewan Cempaka, Cempaka Apartment Hotel (Level 3A, Tower 2) in Kuala Lumpur. The event dates remain the same. We sincerely apologize for the confusion and inconvenience caused by the change. Event schedule will be posted on a later date.

In the wake of the tragic bombing incidents in Brussels, Belgium, we have contacted the venue and our partners in Belgium to inquire about the safety of the upcoming Bushiroad Spring Fest event on April 23, 2016.

After serious considerations, Bushiroad has decided to go ahead with the tournament with the added precaution of basic security measures which we will implement at the event.

Our primary concern remains the well being of the players and fans and we will continue to provide them with the best of care under the circumstances to have fun under safe and secure conditions.

Bushiroad Europe GmbH

We promise to strive for improvement and will work to our best to enhance your overall tournament experience from the next Qualifier onward.

President of Bushiroad USA Inc.
