About the Cup

The Community Cup presented by The Columbus Foundation is a one-day challenge open to companies of all sizes to compete at all skill levels.


The most fun you’ll have with your colleagues this summer. Collaborate with coworkers on something sporty and connect with local companies like Nationwide, One Columbus and the Columbus Blue Jackets.

You have fun. We keep score. It's a field day for adults.

The Cup enters its seventh year in 2024. Check out the list of past winners in our Hall of Fame.

You Play

Local organizations register teams, then compete in four divisions. With fourteen events, there’s something for everyone – Mike from marketing, Izzie from IT and definitely Susan from sales.
