Pans has long been one of the most important events on the calendar, second only to Worlds in terms of prestige and difficulty. The location of Irvine, California means we see many local teams come out in force, as well as top-level competitors flying in from around the world. 

Some of the best matches we've ever seen have taken place at Pans, such as Leandro Lo vs Keenan Cornelius, Joao Gabriel Rocha vs Lucas Lepri, Dante Leon vs Tommy Langaker, JT Torres vs Espen Mathiesen, Mahamed Aly vs Jared Dopp, Karen Antunes vs Bianca Basilio, Erberth Santos vs Matheus Diniz, Edwin Najmi vs Sinistro, Nicholas Meregali vs Otavio Nalati and many more.
