The Dream Championship is a worldwide Captain Tsubasa: Dream Team tournament that was held for the first time in 2019 to decide the top player in the world.
In the initial preparations for the event we were looking forward to intense matches taking place around the world and interacting with the players, however, we had to postpone our original announcement and timing of the tournament due to the current spread of COVID-19.
As a result of careful consideration of what the Dream Championship should be this year, we have decided to carry out every part of the tournament, from the qualifiers to the finals, online.
