5th Annual Windy City Cup

I'll be the first to admit there hasn't been a whole lot of buzz about this year's edition of the Windy City Cup. For the last 4 years, we've brought you the best the sport can offer: top-notch competition, premier sites, stadium-style finals court, great crowds, and the best city in North America.

But with good reason, we've been simply too busy this year to pull it all together. First, we had to move the date back to accomodate for the fact that my oldest daughter was graduating from High School on our normal weekend. (Congratulations, Ashley!) Then we've had a couple of our key organizers move out of town to pursue their careers, and everyone that is still around is busy getting married, going back to school, and just trying to survive life in general.

So we're doing it a little different this time. This year, instead of doing it for the betterment of the sport, we're running the Windy City Cup for the sake of the organizers. In place of bleachers will be lawn chairs. Instead of banners and PA's and expansive contracts with municipal and private entities, we'll have some good friends playing footbag. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a great weekend of relaxation, catching up with old friends and making new ones. Oh yeah, we'll still be doing a little of this too:

So come out and be part of the fun! The rest of this website is still set up for when we bring this event to the masses, which makes a lot of it irrelevant for this year. All you need to know is that it's ON, and you need to show up! The entirety of the event will take place at Union Park, which you can find on the map at the bottom of the Competitors Page.

Can't wait to see you in Chicago! Hit me up at so I can help you find accomodations and make the most of your vacation.
