REYKJAVÍK – November 4, 2021 – CCP Games today announced that EVE Fanfest will return to Reykjavík, Iceland on May 5 – 8, 2022. The first in-person EVE convention to take place since the EVE Invasion World Tour in 2019, EVE Fanfest 2022 is going back to its roots and will be held at the iconic Laugardalshöll Sport Center, home to classic Fanfests as well as this year’s League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational and Championship.

Since 2004, EVE Fanfest has served as a gathering place for EVE Online players to put faces to the names of peers, rivals, and the EVE team that has kept New Eden running for over 18 years. In 2022, CCP is bringing together players from around the world to Reykjavík once more for an epic event offering keynote presentations, developer panels, legendary parties, and more in celebration of the vast spaceship MMO enjoyed by over 24 million players since launch.

CCP is working with local authorities and taking COVID-19 safety measures for EVE Fanfest 2022. To attend the event, proof of vaccination is required. CCP is actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will provide further guidance according to Iceland’s national guidelines as the event grows closer.

“Fanfest is finally back in our home country, and we are taking this opportunity to reunite with our community and celebrate EVE Online better than ever before,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “It has been almost two years since the end of the Invasion World Tour. Meeting in person after all this time will be a completely different and incredible experience. As vaccinations roll out here in Iceland and abroad, we look forward to seeing our community safely in one place again. At last, the gate is green!”

EVE Fanfest 2022 will include:

  • Presentations, roundtables, networking opportunities, ceremonies, and a special tournament from CCP
  • Reykjavik’s largest pub crawl and cocktail events to meet virtual friends and foes
  • Alliance/Corporation dinners for fleet feasts
