A Highlight of the Midwest Field Hockey Community’s Calendar
For several years now, CFHC’s very own tournament, the Chicago Cup, has been the premier co-ed outdoor field hockey tournament for the Midwest. We typically host teams from all over the country: Milwaukee, Columbus, New York, Boston, Ann Arbor, Denver and even a Canadian team from Ottawa!
Typically held in late June or early July at Northwestern University’s lakeside field hockey astroturf, the tournament promises lots of 11-on-11 action, on a fast surface with mid to high levels of play. All this at a beautiful venue views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline.
In true CFHC style we also host a legendary social at the local bar Nevins. For one night, a small segment of the field hockey community fosters friendships and closer ties, facilitated through great food, drink and dancing!
In 2017, due to various logistical issues, the CFHC has handed over the organization of the Chicago Cup to Northwestern Field Hockey. We are still involved in helping to connect teams to the tournament and act as a conduit between interested teams and the organizers!
