Update: June 30, 2020

Over just the two weeks the number of COVID-19 cases have gone from an average of 2k and more than 5k in state of TX. So after careful consultation with our member, our medical advisory team and community’s leaders regarding the health and safety of everyone of us – we have made the difficult decision to CANCEL 1st Nepalese Solidarity Cup 2020, scheduled for July 11 and 12 in Dallas ,TX.

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for all these great teams from local and out of states areas and our supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.
 
We apologize with all the registered teams for any inconvenience this might going to cause.
 
Our team will be reaching out directly to all the registered teams with information about full refunds process.
 
On the good note, we will be hosting same Tournament (1st Nepalese Solidarity Cup -2021) in bigger way next summer.
 
Upcoming next is 5v5 – 9th Annual Dashain Cup -2020 this Fall.
Till then stay healthy and safe!
