Hotel Process

We are pleased to work with a hotel booking agency to book your hotels! This should provide a more simple way of viewing available properties without having to call the individual hotels to determine vacancies. Please visit our "Hotels" tab on the main menu to learn more.  This is a large tournament with over 350 teams per weekend. To ensure more housing options for large Clubs bringing multiple teams (8 or more), please contact GroupHousing Directly BEFORE blocking rooms. 1-888-290-3210 or

 There is a two-night minimum.

We have added a new site this year for Girls Weekend, Fortress Obetz. 


Our deadline to apply has passed, we hope you consider applying for the 2021 Nike Cup when applications open in late Nov.

Nike Challenge Cup Teams:

We know that there is a great deal of concern and uncertainty at this time centered around the current status of sports and other activities due to the Covid-19 outbreak.  The Nike Cup Committee continues to monitor actions and recommendations from both the government and our sports governing bodies in order to keep updated on future decisions.  All of our discussions are centered around the safety of our players, fans, and communities. 

At this current time, we are still preparing for the event to take place as planned in late April. Our goal is to have a final decision made in the very near future that will address any potential changes in our original plans. 

We understand many teams are unable at this time to get permits to travel approved.  It is our hope that by early April these restrictions will be lifted, but again like everyone else, we just don't know what is going to happen.

We will continue to monitor everything with the Coronavirus and will update team contacts of any change in plans should they occur. 

Should our tournament be canceled, teams will receive refunds, and any hotel deposits made would be refunded. 

Thank you and stay healthy!
