The historic Brogden Cup will be rekindled during the Fall Classic at USA Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md., this weekend. The competition between the USA Select U16 and U18 Boys’ and Girls’ teams against their counterparts from Ontario and the Haudenosaunee Nationals will determine the 2021 Brogden Cup winner.

But what is the Brogden Cup?

Originated in 1988 to honor former Johns Hopkins goalie Mac Brogden, who represented the United States in the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, the Brogden Cup originally pitted post-collegiate club players from the United States against Canadian players.

More recently, the event has featured youth competition with the United States players being selected from tryouts from the National Lacrosse Classic and Canadian players coming from the Ontario Lacrosse Association.

In 2019, the event shifted to feature the USA National Team Development Program (NTDP) and was included as part of the Fall Classic. Due to COVID-19, NTDP and the Brogden Cup were postponed in 2020.
