More BPL Cup opportunities than ever in 2022

by Lachlan Williams

After its biggest year yet in 2021, even more clubs will have the chance to get involved in the BPL Cup in 2022.

Clubs will have the opportunity to host preliminary BPL Cup qualifying rounds from as early as January next year, the earliest time available since the competition’s inception in 2017.

Interested clubs can fill out an Expression of Interest form here if they would like to get in early for their qualifying events for 2022 instalment of the competition.

In order to be granted a round between January 1 and February 13 next year, submission of an EOI must be made prior to November 30, 2021. No rounds will be allocated before February 13 for submissions made after this date.

Despite planning already in place for the 2022 BPL Cup, the finishing touches are still being made on the completion of the 2021 event.

With NSW and Victoria having experienced extended lockdowns, qualifying events have been extended into November and December, with interested teams still able to enter these events to try and progress to the state and potentially national finals.

Despite another COVID-interrupted year in parts of the country, 2021 has been the biggest season by far for the BPL Cup, with more than 850 teams and 2700 players competing.

The 2021 BPL Cup National Finals will be played at Moama from February 21-25 next year, running alongside BPL14.
