Events Schedule

Not interested in the main event? Can’t make the start time? Want to play other formats? No problem! CFBEvents has created an amazing Side Events Schedule so you can play Magic all weekend!

Turbo Town

Looking to play Constructed on your schedule? Don’t want to commit to a 3-round event? No problem – come on down to Turbo Town and battle!

Turbo Town is the place to be if you want to play a one-on-one constructed match. For just €5, you can sign up for whatever constructed format you have a deck for, whether that’s Standard, Modern, Legacy, Vintage, Pauper, Canadian Highlander, Artist Constructed, or something even wackier!

Once someone else comes along and signs up for the same format, you’ll be paired up for a match. The winner of the match will receive 30 Prize Tix. Don’t worry – you still get 10 Prize Tix if you lose.

Once the match ends, that’s it – you can go experience other parts of the Grand Prix if you want, but if you want to stay in Turbo Town and play a few more matches, we’ll be happy to help you find your next opponent!

Special Guests

Grand Prix Lyon will feature a group of sponsored professional Magic players and influencers who will be on hand to enhance your GP experience! You can meet the pros and influencers at the following events on Friday:

Spellslinging

Friday, 12 – 4 PM

Ever wanted to match wits with one of the best players in the world? Well, now you can! On Friday afternoon, our featured professional players will be accepting challengers. Bring a Constructed deck and get ready to battle – if you manage to win, you’ll receive an extra prize. No entry fee is required for Spellslinging; just get in the queue, and when your time comes, make sure to bring your A-game!

On Friday evening, we’ll be hosting the Bounty Event, a three-round Sealed Deck Event where you can win Prize Tix based on your record. Some of our sponsored players will be entering the event as well, so we’ve put a bounty out on them! If you get paired against one of our sponsored players and you win the match, you’ll receive extra Prize Tix to commemorate your victory.
