Face-Off Events

The I-95 Cup

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. It was created by John Bodnar and Greg Gurenlian of the Faceoff Academy back in 2016 as a fun and competitive way to see which hot bed has the most depth at the face-off position.

The top players from 4 different areas will meet for a 1 day tournament  in an intense, never before seen style tournament.

The Rivalry Challenge

Boston vs. Philadelphia

One of the best rivalries in sports.

On Thursday, June 13, the top 10 face-off guys from Philadelphia and Boston are meeting up at the halfway point at the Connecticut Sportsplex in Connecticut to finally settle this rivalry the right way.

The Rivalry Challenge will be a one day event where the morning will be set up differently then the afternoon.

During the AM session, the 10 players on Philly and Boston will be split up into two teams of 5. These teams will then go through a round robin where an eventual winner will be determined. Whoever wins in the AM will have a major advantage leading into the afternoon.

We will break for lunch for 1 hour and meet in the afternoon to battle for the title. By this time all of the players from Philly and Boston will be very familiar with each other. In the PM session, Team Philly’s Top 10 will now go head to head against Team Boston’s Top 10. Players will be sent out 1 at a time to battle in a best of 5 face-off where the winner of that matchup will give their team 1 point. The team that gets to a certain amount of points will walk out of the Connecticut Sportsplex with the hardware.

The Rivalry Challenge was created by John Bodnar and Joe Nardella of the Faceoff Factory.

This event will be invite only and players invited to come must register online either through the Philly Faceoff League or the Faceoff Factory.

The winners get the title of champions as well as walking out with the prestigious Navy PFL Jam champion jackets.
