We’re raising the stakes this year in response to growing interest from Unions and LAUs. The tournament will now feature three competitive tiers, with space for a total of 12 dynamic teams. Each tier will engage in fierce competition within its bracket, culminating in a Cup, Plate, and Bowl winner. The top team will be awarded the esteemed Cup, while Plate and Bowl winners will earn a promotion to the next tier. Meanwhile, the fourth place teams in the Cup and Plate brackets will face relegation.


Saturday will be packed with thrilling semi-final matches, starting at 10AM and continuing throughout the day. Teams will need to bring their A-game and leave it all on the field if they want a chance to make it to the Championship matches.

The adrenaline-fueled action doesn’t stop there. Sunday will showcase the consolation matches, setting the stage for an intense competition. As the day unfolds, anticipation will build for the highly anticipated championship matches. The culmination of the tournament will be marked by the crowning of the Cup, Plate, and Bowl champions.
