This online Mahjong tournament's concept is to connect players worldwide while staying home and help support towards a safe resolution of COVID-19 together as a community.

Our daily activities has been changed drastically due to COVID-19. We are currently unable to gather with friends and family members to play Mahjong.
Because we are in a time like this, let's connect the KIZUNA (bond) among Mahjong players worldwide and fight against COVID-19.

Various Mahjong related parties in Japan are also wishing for a global resolution of COVID-19, and are supporting this event.

If the total participants will exceed 1000, AMOS will be providing an Automatic Mahjong table to the winner, so let’s make this happen!

We are also looking for Mahjong clubs and individuals who would like to be part of the livestream as well. This can be through live-video participation using Zoom, or you can also send us a pre-recorded video that we can use during the live stream.

You can promote your club, have shout outs, share your thoughts through your Mahjong journey or display your game play! The sky is the limit! Be creative! We are open to any ideas, and would love to have as many people as possible on the live stream.
