What is Campus Cup?
Campus Cup is a university-wide competition that tests the athletics, wits,
and sportsmanship of all WVU students and faculty. The "Cup" is a series
of events that teams will compete in to gain points towards their overall score.
Teams will be comprised of up to 20 members, with a minimum of 10 players
and five being opposite gender. The “Campus” includes students and faculty
from all majors and departments.
All proceeds benefit MountaineerTHON.
How Does it Work?
The cup is staged into a series of events spanned over a few months. These events
range from tug-of-war to trivia to obstacle course races. Each event that teams
participate in earns them the chance to gain points for their overall score.
The higher the ranking in the events the higher the point value teams earn. While
competing, teams will also be ranked on their sportsmanship for each match played.
The sportsmanship score will be averaged for all events and then multiplied against
overall team points. Good sportsmanship is vital in obtaining a high score, so
playing fair is a must! While playing, teams should also photograph the
events that they participate in. Teams have the opportunity to gain points by
sending in photos to be posted on social media. Finally, teams have one last
opportunity to gain bonus points to be added to their final score: teams
that have 50 percent or more team participation in service events will gain

When is it?
What do we win?
Something big! That's all we can say for right now, but get ready for a big
trophy (and of course, bragging rights).
Who can be on my team? What if I don't have a team?
Anyone that is part of WVU can participate in Campus Cup! Teams can be comprised of greek organizations, friends, clubs, residence halls, etc. Some majors will even be creating teams to play in the cup, so look for more information on that. If you are looking for a team then there will be free agent sign-ups.
