The Challenger Cup, on April 21-23, 2023, is a great mid-season tournament for lower level premier (D1 thru D10) and recreational teams. Over 100 teams participated in last year’s Challenger Cup.

All other events at this time of year cater to the ‘elite’ premier teams only. However, the Challenger Cup will offer your team(s) the perfect opportunity to prepare for the spring season by playing against other teams of similar ability, so every game will be competitive, fun and CHALLENGING.

The Challenger Cup is held at Stump Park in Shawnee, KS.  Playing all games on these great grass fields makes the Challenger Cup a must-play midseason event for your team.

*Space is limited. Be sure to sign-up early!*
