The belfast event is just over. It was a good say with a couple of hundred kids there.
There was not as many things there as other events, all there was was the match attax and sticker swapping and the tournament. I'm not complaining though as its great that topps make the effort to come over to Ireland.
I'm very pleased that both my sons made it to the last 4 but were both beaten in the semi finals. Got two regional finalist cards though and 5 hernandez limiteds.
The tournament was won by a guy called Shrey Cohan who played really well. He was 14 my kids are 9 and 6 so there will be other years.
All in all a great day.

Unlucky mate but well done to your sonsfor getting for getting to the semis! Shrey is my friend from the world championships. He got knocked in the quarters at Bolton like me. Sounds like you had a good day.

Fair play to Topps for taking their roadshow to satisfy all their fans in NI and ROI.

Maybe they will have an event in Wales next season, what with both Swansea and Cardiff being in the Premier League for 2013-2014.

Not a big fan of how the belfast event was run. Long queues to swap (as only 3 staff swapping) and they didn't have all the cards and people had to leave details to get the missing ones sent to them later. Disappointing as my kids were looking forward to completing their collection today. We ended up giving up on the queuing after about 30 mins and will just order online in may :-(

I agree they could have had more staff for the swapping side of things but it didnt spoil the day for us. I still wish they would have an adults tournament. I wanna play :-(
