Announcing the New i95Cup Championship Format


In 2021 The FaceOff Academy & Philly FaceOff League are upgrading our one-of-a-kind event.

After 5 years of seeing the i95cup grow, we witnessed a massive success for our 2022 class in the recruiting circuit.  Not only was the competition incredible at this year’s event but we witnessed the i95cup competitors enjoying a huge recruiting bump from participation.  This event not only created a competitive environment for area bragging rights, but it gave scouts an opportunity to see the biggest FO names go head-to-head in a properly officiated event with up-to-date collegiate rules.  After discussing the future between our coaches and official sponsor Cascade, we have decided that we will be expanding the i95cup’s future with the following keys:

  1. 2021 i95cup will be held at Chase Fieldhouse new fields (780 A Street, Wilmingont DE, 19801) on August 19th

  2. The event will now be made up of Eight teams (6 players per roster)

    1. Florida

    2. Atlanta

    3. Carolina

    4. DMV (DC, MD, VA)

    5. New Jersey

    6. Philadelphia

    7. New York

    8. New England

  3. Each team will be made up of rising juniors (class of 2023) only.

  4. Teams will be built throughout the year at FOA events in these areas and each area will have a final Tryout date.  (Each area’s tryout date will be announced soon).  

  5. Cascade is our official helmet sponsor and Pro Athletics is our official Uniform sponsor.  

  6. The event will be officiated with college level referees and will be recorded in it’s entirety for Collegiate coaches.

WHY THE I95 Cup?

As a face-off midfielder, ever wonder what area of the country produces the best?

Ever read about face-off guys from other areas and wish you could go against them?

There are plenty of individual tournaments out there where individual players are crowned champions, but what area has the overall best??

The I-95 Cup is not your ordinary face-off tournament.

It’s the ultimate challenge to see which AREA of the country has the most talented face-off midfielders.

The top players from 8 different areas will meet for a 1 day tournament in an intense, never before seen style tournament.
