Frozen Festival Brought Chilling Competition in Chicagoland



The Frozen Festival tournament is the second in the 3-part Chicagoland series. The tournament was held at the SFM-managed Wintrust Sports Complex with 81 teams and 1,102 spectators.

“Sending everyone a big THANK YOU for attending the Frozen Festival this past weekend,” said Troy Helton, Hype Nation Partner. “With 81 teams in attendance, we had an undeniable amount of talent on the courts all weekend long. Tournaments like these are what makes us excited for the rest of the season.”

Hype Nation would like to extend a special thank you and shout out to two of our event sponsors. Mikasa for providing the tournament balls for all games and 431 Sports who provided all of the champion medals. Without the support of our sponsors, we wouldn’t be given the opportunity to work with other exceptional industry partners! Below is a list of the division champions from the Frozen Festival.
