It’s with great joy that we announce the return of the Golden Gate Cup!

It is great to have the Golden Gate Cup, hosted in Northern California for the past 10 years return. After not being able to do so last year because of COVID restrictions, we are very excited to have the tournament back on the Floorball calendar.

Join one of the the Premier Floorball Tournaments in the US, where teams compete at the highest level and the winning team in each division wins $1,000.00

This year is extra special as there will  be a youth division for the first time ever at Golden Gate Cup. Age groups will be based on registered teams.

This is sure to be an epic battle between new and past US Floorball champions!

The 2021, 2018 and 2016 US National champions, Menlo Park will be there. Take this opportunity to play against them and many other great teams from all over the USA.

The Golden Gate Cup will be played at Silver Creek Sportsplex in San Jose, CA. This is the same amazing facility as past years.
