Norwalk, CT – The New York Anime Festival (NYAF) and Wizards of the Coast today announced that the Magic: The Gathering World Championships will be held at the Jacob Javits Center this December during the New York Anime Festival.

“Gaming and artistry are important parts of the anime experience, and there’s nothing bigger or better than Magic: The Gathering World Championships,” NYAF Show Manager John McGeary said. “We’re honored to have the Magic: The Gathering World Championships take place alongside the New York Anime Festival and we know both events will only benefit from this partnership.”

“Magic: The Gathering World Championships is an annual event that draws enthusiasts from around the globe,” said Elaine Chase, Senior Brand Manager for Wizard of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering. “Being in New York City along side the New York Anime Festival just seemed like a logical choice as gamers and fans of both unite to take over the Javits Center.”
