Cheers! We're Just a Week Away!

The big event is just a week away! Footbag is celebrating it's 40th year, and Navy Pier will put it in the spotlight during the Windy City Cup. Don't tell your friends that you wished you could have been there!

The City of Big Shoulders will once again host the greatest Footbag Net tournament this side of the World Championships. We'll be set up for pick-up games and preliminary rounds at Union Park on June 21st and 22nd. Union Park is at the corner of Lake St and Ashland St, and super easy to access from either the Green Line or the Pink Line on the CTA. Madison St and Ashland St buses also service the park.

For Sunday, June 23rd, we'll bring the Big Show to Navy Pier for the final rounds of competition. We will be at the North Gateway Park, just behind the Free Trolley stops on Grand Ave at the Pier. Bring the family out for a great day at Chicago's biggest and best tourist attraction. World Champion Scott Davidson will be doing footbag freestyle demonstrations at the Family Pavilion Stage inside of Navy Pier, and we'll be handing out free footbags to kids at North Gateway Park as long as supplies last.

If you plan on competing, check out the Competitors page and the Register Now! page. Online registration is not required, but it will make life a lot easier for you and your tournament directors if you take care of registration now instead of onsite. Online registration will close on the evening of June 20th.

If you're just coming out to witness, be at Union Park on the 22nd and Navy Pier on the 23rd. Competition will be underway by Noon both days.
