Raleigh, NC - 2020 Champions Cup Series (CCS) Regional Championships registration is now open for a limited number of non-member club teams. The Series’ three regional events will provide certain clubs, that have either delayed their full participation until the 2021 Series or others that are interested in becoming a full member, an opportunity to compete against existing member clubs. Dates for the 2020 CCS Regional Championships are provided below. To be clear, this application process is for the three regional events only. Clubs registering during open application are not participating in the full 2020 CCS and will not advance to the 2020 CCS National Championship nor the 2020 CCS World Championship. Such automatic advancement is limited to CCS Member Club teams only.
For each regional event, there are only two spots available per age group. Availability will be on a first come, first serve basis. The open application deadline for each regional event is 10 days prior to the opening day of matches.
Registration for the 2021 Champions Cup Series is now open. The official 2021 season will feature 12 clubs in each region for a total of 36 American clubs participating. The CCS guarantees three tournaments during a calendar year: Regional Championships, National Championships and the World Futsal Championships at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex® in Orlando, FL. The winners of the Division I CCS National Championships will earn free tournament entry and accommodation for United Futsal’s World Futsal Cup in Barcelona, Spain. Flight cost is not included.
