2018 Nathan’s qualifier schedule

Update: The schedule has been posted and registration is open for all qualifiers on http://www.majorleagueeating.com/contests.php
Notable omissions include all NASCAR qualifiers and the NYNY Casino in Las Vegas which has held a qualifier every year since at least 2003. The Mets ballpark takes over as the longest running qualifier site.

MLE announces that the 2018 Nathan’s qualifier schedule will be released at 2pm Eastern today.

The Cincinnati Reds May 18 and the New York Mets June 24 are probable sites since Nathan’s Famous is listed as a sponsor for those game dates.

A qualifier will not be held at the San Antonio Big League Weekend next month since that event will not take place in 2018 due to the NCAA Final Four being held at the Alamo Dome.
