There will be a streak of Eternal events that includes the only EU Legacy GP if anyone fancies spending some time over here.
4 Seasons Fall, 23th-24th Nov, Bologna, with both Eternal formats
Magicfest Bologna, 29th-1st Dec, the only Legacy GP in EU
Nebraska's War, 5th-8th Dec Lucca, with both Eternal formats

Bologna's got an international airport easy to fly to and takes 1h and half of high speed train to reach Venice in case one wants to visit it while using Bologna as base during the first week. Then 30mins by train to the south there is Florence that one has to go through and can visit for a couple of days on his way to Lucca. Close to the latter there is Pisa with int airport to fly back home.

If coming only for one week the best combination in terms of Magic, tourism and time/money saving is GP+Nebraska, visiting Florence in the meantime. I'm a local and usually friends come for Nebraska's War from overseas (Joe Brennan, Dan Miller, etc.) so I can provide information and lodging in Florence, do not hesitate to ask.

And after scheduling with minimal time to plan on the VERY WEEKEND before the only Legacy GP in Europe (more than one year after the previous one) here comes the scheduling on the VERY Christmas WEEKEND.

May I suggest you Nebraska's War?

Same TO, location where MKM Paris was just held in, but at least it won't be June-hot. Area (Nanterre) even further from Paris than last year, less run-down, but there is not much around. Plan ahead for traveling and especially lodging since it's basically Christmas Holiday.

If anyone from overseas fancies spending two weeks in Europe going to both (Nebraska's War and EWEU), I know maybe @IamActuallyLvL1 might, let me know, I can be of help especially for the Italian part of the trip.

This is has been the defacto EU tournament with both Eternal formats for some time, with players coming even from overseas.

LOCATION:
Lucca Fiere e Congressi Spa
Via della Chiesa XXXII, 237 (Traversa I)
55100, Lucca (LU) - Italy

Details will be added and will be found on website, facebook and event.

TO is probably going to replicate the same formula whe had last year, hosting TWO Vintage events: the main one on Saturday and the premium one on Friday. The latter was sort of a premium "High Stakes, High Rewards" event for the dieahard players, with a registration fee of 100 euros.

TO also is considering the idea of allowing 15 proxies (playtest cards) for the first time which would boost attendance a lot.

Feel free to ask for any logistic help, especially if you plan to go to Florence before or after, friends from overseas have been visiting me for the past years, so you're definitely in for some tough competition.

LOCATION:

40139, Bologna, Italy

Details will be found on website and facebook. 15 proxies (playtest cards) allowed.
Even if the Summer one might get low attendance for our format, you might want to take a quick trip to Bologna for some Vintage action, Legacy on Sunday is still going to be quite big thus you'll be able to satisfy all your Eternal needs.
Feel free to ask me or the TOs for any logistic help.

Depending on where you're based and if you play Legacy too, you should consider 4Seasons tournament instead of MKM. They do 4 events per year, announced well in advance, in the easily reachable and cheap Bologna, usually min 150p for Legacy and they started doing Vintage with 15 proxies getting a really good turnout last time.

I'm the Italian that fought to have the TO register us on site, congrats.
Come to Italy at 4Seasons, but more importantly at Nebraska's War!

Nothing to note for Vintage, but one of the tabletop qualifiers will be in Florence.
Just as a heads up, if any of you or your friend gets invited, I am a local in case I can be of any help.
If Joe (Brennan) would ever use a computer he could speak at lenght about my hospitality!
I'll be at a marriage on the actual 6th, but feel free to notify me if you/any of your friends are coming.

Basically there are no news.
I had multiple people try to reach out to them, even NA Champion, Brian Coval, which has won a paid trip, none got any reply.
The only thing that closely resembles an answer was given when someone on Reddit claimed to be in contact with BoM and that they had said to him that there would have been no EWEU. BoM staff member in charge of it assured they were still dealing with WotC.
I wonder what they might have to talk with WotC about, there have already been trials for NAEW and it's usually announced months in advance, tbh I really hope we could get a different TO doing it.

As I usualy tell everyone asking, just come to Nebraska's War which it's been THE Eternal event in EU for recent years.

After the success of the previous stop, Vintage is here to stay as part of the 4 Seasons Series.

LOCATION:
ARCI Benassi
Viale Sergio Cavina 4
40139, Bologna, Italy

Details can be found on website and facebook and event. 15 proxies (playtest cards) allowed.
With no news if we're even having an EWEU you might want to take a quick trip to Bologna for some Vintage action, also Legacy on Sunday is quite big thus you'll be able to satisfy all your Eternal needs.
Feel free to ask me or the TOs for any logistic help.

I can try to ask directly to the guy if you want, ravidel85 is actually Daniele Cupparoni, a regular of the other monthly Vintage League here in Italy that was also part of our Italian expedition at EW EU in 2018.
