#NISAINDCUP

A first of its kind

Sponsored by

Independent clubs compete to put their community on the map

Play Independent

For the inaugural Independent Cup, each region operates independently and makes decisions autonomously.

We believe in creating opportunities for clubs to advance based on performance — to step up and prove they are champions.

A first of its kind. A cup for only independent clubs. Teams from multiple leagues will convene at a regional stadium, play each other in a series of matches, and prove on the pitch who is regional champion.

We will be taking COVID-19 precautions, including playing behind closed doors where restrictions apply.

All other details are agreed upon at the regional level among the clubs.
