    Oceania International Championships! | Melbourne. March 10-12th.

    As today marks exactly one month till the first day of competition and all relevant information has been released, it only makes sense that a thread goes up!

    REGISTRATION can be found on the POIC site as well as the schedule, travel info, and FAQs.

    The event will be held at Melbourne Park Function Centre, the same location as Australian Nationals the previous two years. 9 Rounds of Swiss will take place on Friday the 10th, followed by 5 (or 6. There are currently two Rounds 14s on the schedule) more rounds of Swiss on Saturday, with Finals (Top 8) being played on Sunday.
    Entry for Masters is $60, whilst Juniors and Seniors will pay $30. Player caps, and further pricing can be found here, alongside registration links.

    More information can be found on the on the official Pokemon website event page.

    Are you making the trip to Melbourne? Will you be following from home? Let us know in the thread below!

    If anyone is planning on coming a bit earlier to explore Melbourne a little bit, I am free from March 1st. I'm happy to show people around and even offer to let some people stay at my house, send me a message somewhere if you're interested.

    Screen Worlds at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square would be something cool to check out. Pretty decent nightlife (especially compared to Sydney) like Beta Bar in Hawthorn. Otherwise, if you're into sports there's one A-League (soccer) game on Saturday 11/03, no cricket games, no AFL games but one AFL Womens game almost next door to where the IC is on Sunday 12/03 @ 11.05am with FREE entry.

    Confirmed that there will be no official stream. Local community members are doing their best behind the scenes to see what we can make happen.

    Regardless, Pokémon Australia will be doing some coverage both of TCG and VGC on their site and on twitter, so whether any stream ends up happening there will be some coverage.
