Pack Your Bags- The Cup is Coming!

2014 WCC Champions Walt Houston and Ben Alston

North America's premier footbag net tournament will be here quicker than you think!  June 19-21 is already NEXT WEEKEND!! Who's coming to Chicago to take the Windy City Cup from last year's Champions?

If you haven't made your plans yet, what are you waiting for?  We're expecting talent from Memphis, Montreal, Minnesota, and both Coasts.  (That's the East Coast and the West Coast.  Sometimes you have to explain things in detail for the Memphis guys.)  And of course, our local Chicago crew will be representing in full force as well.

Take a moment to pre-register yourself by clicking here.  It only takes a minute to do and it will save you and the tournament director's a lot of time onsite during the event.  After the Registration Form brings you back to our site, refresh the page and click on the "Donate" button at the bottom of the page to prepay your registration fees.  Prepayment is not required, but once again it will make life easier the day of the event.

Competitors:  click right here for the latest schedule updates, maps, and other pertinent information regarding this year's event.  Just in case you missed it:  we will be playing doubles net with Side Out Scoring.  Early rounds will be best two-out-of-three to eleven, later rounds will go to fifteen points.  Singles net will continue to be played with Rally Scoring.

We'd like to take a moment to thank our sponsors, so here we go...  Thanks to ProKicker Footbags for being there for us every single time we've set out to run this tournament.  They've provided the official footbag for the Windy City Cup since we began, and we hope that they'll be there for many more years to come.  You can help that happen by supporting them!  Click right here and buy something cool for you or someone you love!

We can't forget about WorldFootbag either!  They've been around as long as people have been playing footbag.  Where would this sport be without the team at WorldFootbag?  I have a feeling you wouldn't be reading this right now if it weren't for all of the support they've provided for this game for the last three decades.  Do yourself a favor and check them out by clicking right here.  We're always happy to bring more sponsors on board, so feel free to send an email to if you'd like to become part of the team!

And finally, let's not forget those that are less fortunate.  Click on the Perpetual Flame Scholarship to see how you can help make dreams come true for a footbag player somewhere in the world.

See you in the Windy City!!
