The fourth edition of the Michael Lipov Memorial Cup will take place in Chicago October 25-27. Prepared and hosted by Chicago Inter Handball Club, the Memorial Cup has become a traditional yearly meeting for clubs to kick off the new season of handball in the U.S.
For the second consecutive year, the Memorial Cup will welcome an international team. After a Ukrainian team made the trip last year, a team from Moscow will be participating this year. Building off the strong dynamic of this summer's international beach event, Chicago is contributing to reinforcing the handball bond between the U.S. and Europe.
There will be a total of ten teams (seven men, three women) in the tournament. The men's league will include teams from Columbus, Chicago, Minnesota, West Point, the defending U.S. National Champions, New York Athlete Club and the club from Moscow. The women's league will consist of the University of North Carolina, New Jersey Ocean, and the defending U.S. National Champions Chicago Inter.
So join us this coming weekend for some great handball action in the great city of Chicago!
