It has been decided to cancel the Gunpla Builders World Cup 2020-2021 scheduled to be held in 2021: full official info

Thank you for your continued patronage of BANDAI SPIRITS Co., Ltd. products.
The event “Gunpla Builders World Cup 2020”, which was scheduled to be held in 16 areas / regions around the world from May 2020, will be held as “Gunpla Builders World Cup 2020-2021 (tentative)” in 2021 this year. We have also considered planning to use online together so that we can do it, but we have a relationship with participants from all over the world, everyone who supports them, visitors, cast members, etc. We would like to inform you that it is unavoidable to cancel the event in 2021 because we judge that it is difficult for the health and safety of all the people and the fair examination that can be convinced as a world competition.
We are also very sorry that those who were born on or after January 1, 2006 and who will be 14 years old last year and this year will not be able to take the opportunity to participate in the junior course.
At the next “Gunpla Builders World Cup”, we are considering changing the age setting for each course so that more people can participate.
We will inform you about the next tournament of the newly reborn “Gunpla Builders World Cup” on the official page.
We are considering holding the “Gunpla Builders Contest 2021” as a Gunpla production contest that everyone can enjoy this year as a tournament that will lead to the next, so please wait for the detailed announcement.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to the customers who have been looking forward to it. Thank you for your understanding.
