The 2022 Midwestern Cup Presented by Warrior Lacrosse

 

As we expand our reach to non-hotbed areas, The FaceOff Academy is introducing a

one-of-a-kind event. After 6 years of success with the i95 cup team-based

championship, we are bringing it to the Midwest! 32 of the best FO men (open to rising freshmen in High School to rising freshmen in College) from

the Midwest are competing for recruiting status as well as bragging rights for the top

Midwest area in the FaceOff world. 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

Warrior, we have decided that we will be starting the Midwest Cup’s future with the

following keys:

1. 2022 Midwest Cup will be held at: 

- The outdoor turf fields at Denver University (2240 Buchtel Blvd S, Denver,

CO 80210)

2. The event will now be made up of four teams (8 players per roster)

Denver 

 Illinois

 

 

Michigan  

Ohio

3. Each team will be made up of high school aged FaceOff Athletes.

4. Teams will be built throughout the year at FOA events in these areas and each

area will have a final Tryout date.  

5. Warrior is our official Glove sponsor and Pro Athletics is our official Uniform

sponsor.  

6. The event will be officiated with college level referees and will be recorded in

its entirety for Collegiate coaches.  

WHY THE MIDWEST CUP?

As a faceoff midfielder, ever wonder what area of the country produces the best?

Ever read about faceoff 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 Midwest Cup is not your ordinary faceoff tournament.

It’s the ultimate challenge to see which AREA of the country has the most talented

faceoff midfielders.

The top players from 4 different areas will meet for a 1-day tournament in an intense,

unique format.
