The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has announced the return of its WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C), featuring 18 stops both domestic and international, that run through the end of the calendar year.

The regional poker tour returns for its 20th season beginning Wednesday, July 19 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma, immediately following the conclusion of the 2024 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Additional dates for 2025 will be announced later this fall on

The $1 million freeroll returns, featuring a similar format as the 2023-24 season. Kicking off with the Choctaw Circuit Event, official WSOP gold ring winners from either the live or online circuit events through May 2025 will qualify for the invitation-only "Tournament of Champions" event, whose location will be announced at a later date. 

Harrah’s Cherokee will be the second stop on the Circuit, beginning on Thursday, August 1 with the first half of the tour continuing virtually nonstop until Harrah’s Cherokee returns on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, and runs until December 9, 2024.

While many familiar venues will return for the 2024-25 slate, one new stop will be The Commerce Casino in Los Angeles with WSOP-C action taking place from November 14 - 25, 2024. The Commerce previously hosted the Tournament of Champions in May 2024.

The international tour will kick off with Tallinn, Estonia at Olympic Park Casino on July 19-28 and continue through Italy’s Casino Sanremo from November 1 to November 11.

"Quietly, the WSOP Circuit is far and away the biggest poker tour in the world,” said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. "It’s time to shout about the great events that bring the excitement and prestige of the WSOP to our regional properties. This slate of domestic and international events rounds out 2024 in a momentous way, and we look forward to building on this list of dates and venues for 2025 soon."

Most Circuit stops will begin on Thursdays, with the four-day Main Events beginning on the second Friday of the tournament. Every stop is encouraged to add Seniors and Ladies events, where the winners will qualify to participate in the "Tournament of Champions." Additionally, most WSOP-C stops will feature standardized tournament structures and payouts, ensuring players traveling to multiple stops will be treated consistently at every event, barring any regulatory or local law differences.

All stops will release their series’ event schedules upon approval by their local regulatory body, with the guarantee that every stop will offer at least a dozen official WSOP gold ring events starting with $250 buy-in levels and will include a $1,700 Main Event (buy-ins vary for international locations). WSOP Online Circuit events on WSOP.COM will be scheduled monthly.

Additional information on individual circuit events, including event schedules and structure sheets, can be found online.
