UKU National Cup - Sign-Up Form & Online Discussion Forums

The sign-up form to the UKU National Cup is now live! Register your interest to take part in this Nationals qualification competition now. 

Once sign ups have closed, we will come up with a provisional schedule of games. We understand that some teams may not be able to commit to taking part in the Cup once this information has been released e.g. due to the number of rounds that need to be played, so there will be a grace period where teams will be able to pull out if they feel that they will be unable to meet the structure's requirements. However, we do expect teams to only complete this form if they really have the intention to compete in the Cup, with the hope of qualifying for Nationals. 


Details on what's involved in the National Cup can be found here:
