You Have Two Weeks to Get to Chicago

If you haven't already made your plans to compete in the Windy City Cup, what are you waiting for? The event officially starts in just TWO WEEKS! Even if you just plan to come out to see what it's all about, get your plans set right now- you don't want to miss this event!

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 busses 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. Scott Davidson will be doing footbag freestyle demonstrations at the Family Pavillion Stage inside of Navy Pier, and we'll be handing out free footbags to kids at North Gateway Park as long as supplies last.

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!

If you plan on competing, check out the Competitors page and the Register Now! page. 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.
