The World Series of Poker International Circuit will feature a record number of events over the next year. Thirteen stops have already been confirmed, with additional stops expected to be added to the 2018 portion of the calendar.
The 2017-18 WSOP International Circuit schedule kicks off in August at Iguazu Casino in Argentina. Additional tournament series will be held in Holland, Italy, Brazil, Czech Republic, Brazil, Australia, and Morroco, among others.
"Our partner casinos have done a terrific job bringing the WSOP brand and experience to their properties," said WSOP Director Gregory Chochon. "The WSOP International Circuit is here to stay and we look forward to continually improving the experience and prize pools for the players."

Like the U.S. domestic circuit, the International series will award two qualifiers per stop for the WSOP Global Casino Championship. A Main Event winner and the Casino Champion will each win an entry into the season-ending freeroll, in addition to the gold WSOP Circuit ring and prize money from that event.
The International and U.S. tours collide in the Global Casino Championship in the summer of 2018. The 34 international qualifiers will converge with the U.S. Domestic circuit qualifiers, which includes 50 at large point qualifiers, plus the up to 52 qualifiers that garner a seat via automatic qualification methods.
