The Tournament

All eyes will be on the teams from the northeast region competing for the Brotherly Love Cup.

Festivities begin at 10am. The first game will begin at 10:20am. Typically, there is a 45 minute break around noon so that there is time to prepare for the elimination portion of the tournament. Games typically last around 15 minutes and are very fast-paced. There are frequent breaks in between games which will give you time to grab a bite to eat.  We encourage you to enjoy the spectacle!

Tournament Schedule (please note that times are subject to change)
