ACO Implements State Championships of Cornhole

18 Nov, 2013


Cornhole Players Can Win a Spot at the ACO World Championships of Cornhole

American Cornhole Organization (ACO) announced plans this week to develop and coordinate annually in all 50 states, a State Championship of Cornhole. The event will initially feature a State Singles and State Doubles title. The winner(s) in each category win a $250 Golden Ticket and entry into the ACO World Championships of Cornhole.

“This is one of the most exciting new developments in the sport of cornhole. Not only will each state have the opportunity to crown the number one player and team residing in that state, but those players will be able to represent their state in the most prestigious cornhole tournament in the world, the ACO World Championships of Cornhole” stated ACO president Frank Geers. The winner in each category will be awarded a spot in the final field of play for the specific title of King of Cornhole or World Doubles Champions. “We liken the structure of the event to the NCAA Basketball Tournament, where not only will be the greatest cornhole players on the planet be competing for the titles but a number of dark horses will be given a chance at one shining moment as well. This is what dreams are made of, and it’s going to be awesome for the world of cornhole!” exclaimed Frank Geers.

The program officially launched November 4, 2013 and in less than 10 days seven cities, representing seven different states have already jumped on board to claim the rights to host the ACO State Championships of Cornhole. The first seven states on board: AL, FL, NC, NM, SC, VA, and WV.

Every State Championship will be scheduled to take place on a Friday night and Saturday within the month of June. The tournaments will be open and free of charge for any active ACO card carrying member for that current season. Sign up will be based on first come first served basis with each championship only able to field 160 singles and 160 doubles teams.
