Red Bull City Clinch

Red Bull City Clinch

Deeply rooted in Chicago lives the story of 16” Softball and the infamous Northside vs. Southside battle for the soul of our city. This year, the Red Bull City Clinch tournament will pit both sides against each other. Who will be the king and queens of Chicago Softball?

With the Chicago Sport and Social Club, Red Bull City Clinch has claimed the title as the premier tournament of champions for Chicago 16” Softball. Teams can qualify by winning one of our designated spring and summer leagues. As a league champion hailing from the Northside or Southside, said teams will have an opportunity to clinch the title and bring it back to their side of the city (until next year of course when it goes up for grabs yet again).  When you sign up for a designated spring or summer CSSC 16” softball league, all you have to do is take the top spot in your league and you’re in the tournament.

Think your team has what it takes to be the Red Bull City Clinch champions?
