This event marks the third-ever National Championships held in Singapore, after the events held in 2015, won by Malaysian Zarif Ayman, and 2016, won by Guan Yang Ze. The Playoffs stage also constitutes the first offline event held in Singapore since The Pokémon Company took over this region in June 2020, and the first offline event in the region since the Singapore Series 3 Open in March 2020. Only players residing in Singapore could play this tournament.
With a cap of 128 entries, players would enter the Qualifiers to face each other in up to 7 Swiss rounds with open teamsheets, in best-of-one matches, on 28 May 2022.
The top 8 players at the end of the day would qualify to the Playoffs, which would be held in a live event in Singapore on 12 June 2022. The Playoffs would consist in a classic seeded single-elimination bracket, with best-of-three matches and using the same teams as in the Qualifiers.
The winner would receive a Day 2 invite to the 2022 World Championships, as well as a Travel Award, while the rest of the top 4 players would receive Day 1 invites.
The Playoffs matches were not broadcast live, but the matches were recorded and a recap video was prepared and published on 27 July. Check it out!
