    Amigo-Spiele, the distributor of Pokemon TCG in Germany and Austria announced their plans for the new Arena Cup series (special local series) for 2014/15.

    What is known so far:
    * Instead of being within one month or two like before, Arena Cups will be spread over the season
    * They will give CP on Regionals level (and count towards that BFL)
    * Prizes to be announced, but winner of each age group earns a 150 EUR travel award for Nationals Championship / following Arena Cups
    * Tournament structure will be Swiss best-of-three with Tops
    * Format will be Expanded (all rounds)!
    * There will be online coverage for this tournament series (this might be interesting for US players as well, as the first Arena Cup will be prior to US Regionals)
    * In parallel, there will also be a video game tournament also granting CP

    The first Arena Cup will be taking place on September 27th, 2014 in Berlin.
