Though there are no championships, finals or grade winners at The Global Games, we certainly don’t hold back on prizes and awards.
The major award (Team of the Festival) goes to the team that has showcased great effort, teamwork & sportsmanship throughout the full weekend both on and off the playing arena
This year’s winning team will receive a $5000 tour package and tickets to see either the Blues, Breakers, Black Sticks or Warriors in 2024. Having prizes like this for teams to aim for, helps ensure a very positive event. We also award individual and other team awards listed below.
For each game, there will be an online game sheet to fill out for each team. Game sheets are an important aspect of our events as they help us determine the following awards. Teams will be given a link to game sheets before the event via our festival App .
