The USA Cornhole National Championships will be held at the Iowa West Field House in Council Bluffs from October 14-October 17, 2021! Local spectators are encouraged to come out to join in on the festivities and especially be part of the audience for the NBC Sports Network broadcasts. 

The event will have two separate two-hour TV broadcasts on NBC Sports Network. The first will be live on Saturday, October 16 at 7:00 p.m. CT, and the second will be taped Sunday, October 17 at approximately 11:00 a.m. CT and aired at 7:00 p.m. CT.  Both broadcasts will be reaired immediately following the premiere.

The USAC National Championships will feature 5 different tournaments: Women’s Singles, Men’s Singles, Women’s Doubles, Men’s Doubles, and Mixed Doubles.  Each event will include participants that have qualified for the National Championships. Each tourney will have a preliminary round followed by a single-elimination Championship Bracket.  The winner of each of these tournaments will become a member of the USA Cornhole National Team (8 individuals- 4 women/ 4 men).  This team will potentially have the opportunity to play against cornhole players from around the world in international tournaments including a planned US Open.

In addition to the National Championships, a Junior National Championships will be held for junior competitors that are 18 and under.  The juniors will compete in a singles and doubles tournament.

At the tournament, there will be local club representatives sharing opportunities to get involved in area cornhole leagues.  There will also be food and beverages, open cornhole play, blind draws, cornhole skill contests, USA Cornhole merchandise, and lots of great competition from some of the best cornhole players in the world!
