Irish Masters: Further Details!

Hey everybody! It’s time for more news on the 2015 Irish Masters (March 27th-29th in Dublin!)which I’m sure you’re dying to hear about! Let’s start with the big stuff, shall we?

The 2015 Irish Masters will be on in the Mont Clare Hotel in Dublin which is in Dublin City Centre. It’s very near lots of accommodation options if you don’t want to stay in the hotel itself. Central Dublin is pretty small so anywhere in the City Centre, or the Ballsbridge area, won’t be further than 20-30 minutes maximum walk away.

Tickets to the Irish Masters will be sold via the Muse on Mini’s web store. They will go on sale at 7 pm GMT on Friday December 19th. Since Muse is an American company tickets will be sold in USD so the ticket price has changed slightly and now will be $50. An initial run of 96 tickets will be sold with more tickets made available in January. The exact number of extra tickets and the when they’ll be sold will be announced later.

Tickets will be sold with an attached qualifier to show which event you are registered for. All tickets include a weekend pass to the Irish Masters and include all events you play in over the weekend. Tickets will all be the same price. Tickets will come in 3 varieties: Friday Qualifier, Friday Qualifier with Saturday Hardcore, and Saturday Qualifier. There will only be 32 Hardcore tickets available since we want the even to play to a finish and 5 rounds is about as much as most sane organizers can handle. If there is overwhelming interest in the event we may change the size but for now if you want to guarantee a spot in Hardcore get one of those tickets.

Don’t forget there will be Scramblers running all weekend as well as the Team Tournament on Sunday. These events will be organized on the weekend from interested players who are around so there are not pre-booked spots available for them.
