UNC Welcomes 11 Teams To Compete In 31st Edition Of Carolina Blue Cup

Feb. 11, 2020, 9:10 a.m. (ET)


The 2020 edition of the Carolina Blue Cup will be the 31st edition of the tournament. 

A total of 11 teams will battle for the 2020 Carolina Blue Cup title this weekend in the heart of the University of North Carolina's campus. 

 

Started in 1990, the Carolina Blue Cup has welcomed handball to UNC over the past three decades. New York Athletic Club (NYAC) claimed last year's tournament title. 2020 marks the 31st edition of the Carolina Blue Cup.

 
"This is one of the biggest tournaments in my four years and definitely the most competitive," said Carolina Handball leader and event organizer Alex Laws.
 
"This year's Cup features teams from around the East Coast and even a team from Canada. There are much higher stakes compared to previous years and we plan to have a lot of fun surprises this weekend to blow people's expectations out of the water!"

The action will take place across two courts in Fetzer Gym. Carolina Handball will plan on put some of the matches on their Instagram live stories, but are also renting a camera to record games and upload them afterwards.
