With North American rosters now locked and ready, the HaloWC 2018 Columbus Finals are right around the corner. On March 23-25, sixteen teams will clash for the nine allotted regional spots available for the Halo World Championship Finals later this April.
On Friday, March 23, entrance to the MLG Arena will be limited to team and competitors as the venue floor will be filled with tournament stations to ensure a smooth tournament and preserve competitive integrity. However, fans in attendance will be treated to an awesome free official viewing party hosted in the nearby Microsoft Store location at Easton Town Center.
Friday March 23, 4 – 10pm ET

At the official Columbus Finals Friday Viewing Party, fans can not only enjoy the live broadcast all throughout the store, but there will also be numerous gift cards up for raffle, MLG swag giveaways, 343-signed goodies, and staff from both 343 Industries and MLG on-site to hang out, chat with, and share in the festivities.
In addition, there will be an on-site 2v2 tournament open to all attendees, with additional MS Store gift cards up for grabs for the top three places.
