This is the Super Bowl of Kickball.
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
After a fiercely contested year-long season, The Circuit, the only national, professional tour of top-flight, competitive kickball tournaments, will come to a conclusion at The Circuit Cup Championship presented by Complete Discovery Source in New Orleans on November 11. After battling each other in cities across the United States for Circuit points and cash prizes, the top nationally ranked teams will compete in the final tournament to determine the ultimate Circuit Champion for 2012.
"We've had a great National Tour that started in February and will conclude in just a few short weeks," said Matt Kemph, Founder/CEO of Kickball365. "We have had great support from all of our sponsors and our event managers in each city along the way. Now there is just one more tournament to go: The Circuit Cup Championship. This is the Super Bowl of Kickball. This is by far the most competitive kickball field ever assembled, and teams will have to win eight hard-fought games in one day to win the $10,000 grand prize. The winner of The Circuit Cup Championship will truly be the best kickball team in the country."
The Circuit Cup Championship is a one-day tournament that will take place in La Salle Park. The tournament will feature nationally-ranked teams from 14 different states. With more than 28 teams having qualified, more than 500 of the nation's best will be in New Orleans to test their skills. Teams have competed over the past 10 months in 14 different cities amassing Circuit points that were used to determine their seedings in The Circuit Cup Championship. The top 16 teams in The Circuit Cup Championship will take home prize money from the tournament’s $19,000 total purse. In accumulating the most points on tour, The Situation of Virginia Beach, Virginia earned this year’s Circuit National Tour Championship and goes into The Circuit Cup Championship as the number one seed.
"Congratulations to The Situation on winning the 2012 Circuit’s National Tour," said Kemph. "With very strong finishes in the their last two tournaments they competed in (Virginia Beach Kickball Open and Boston Kickball Open), they just edged out the New York Shower Hammers. The final rankings set up some very interesting pool play match-ups come November 11, and we can't wait for the action to get started."
In addition to the tournament, Kickball365 has set up several social events throughout the weekend that will make this a truly unique vacation experience for visiting teams and players. Social events in the heart of New Orleans begin on Thursday, November 8 and conclude on Sunday, November 11. During the course of the weekend, Kickball365 will also present the end-of-the-season National Tour Awards, including Fan Favorite All Star Team, Most Valuable Player Awards, Best Rookie Team, Breakthrough Team, Best Play and many more.
