The California Cup International Field Hockey Tournament was started in 1972 by Tom Harris with just six men’s teams. Forty-two years later, the tournament now popularly known as Cal Cup has grown to 150+ teams in 14 divisions and played over 4 days. Cal Cup is North America’s only Field Hockey Tournament featuring clubs & teams from many countries such as USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Holland, Spain, Taiwan & India to name a few.
Many current and former International players from many of these countries play for various clubs that participate in the Men & Women Super Divisions with a *US$7,500* prize for each Champion. FIH level umpires from different countries as far as Germany & Australia are invited to officiate. In all, more than 2,000 athletes; young and old alike, participate in the tournament.

It is located just an hour NW of Los Angeles and within driving distance to many popular destinations such as Disneyland, Universal Studios, The Griffith Observatory, The Paul Getty Museum, the California Missions, and many well equipped shopping malls.
