Flip Cup Guys, a leading organizer of flip cup tournaments and niche sports competitions, will host the second annual World’s Largest Flip Cup Tournament (WLFCT) on October 11, 2009 at the Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Flip Cup Guys, known by tens of thousands of beer-loving twenty and thirty somethings for its fun niche sports events – such as flip cup tournaments, tricycle races and competitive eating contests – has partnered with the World Adult Kickball Association and Hooters Casino Hotel to bring its record-breaking 64-team tournament to the west coast.
The WLFCT is being held in conjunction with WAKA Kickball’s 12th annual Founders Cup World Championship tournament, which will be held in Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 10.
“Flip Cup Guys is very excited to be working with WAKA Kickball, Hooters Casino Hotel and all of our sponsors to bring the World’s Largest Flip Cup Tournament to Las Vegas. This year is going to be bigger than ever”, said Scott Gerber, co-founder of Flip Cup Guys.
WLFCT’s grand prize is a 7-night Spring Break Package to Negril, Jamaica, courtesy of Sun Splash Tours. The Spring Break Jamaica trip will include 7 nights of hotel accommodations, airport transfers and a complete activities program. The WLFCT Survivor Tournament champion will win a free cruise for two from Tampa to Grand Cayman on April 15-19, 2010 courtesy of VH1 Best Cruise Ever, a floating music festival hosted by 3 Doors Down and featuring Lifehouse, Shinedown and more. Other prize sponsors include Portopong, the world’s first inflatable portable beer pong table, Major League Flip Cup, creator of the World Series of Flip Cup, WAKA Kickball, the world’s largest adult kickball organization, BPONG.com, creators of the World Series of Beer Pong, and Hooters Casino Hotel.
