The 2013 Ruffneck Cup (home page) will be awarded to the Puget Sound club that can best accomplish the task of the cup slogan: “beat thy neighbor.”
The Kitsap Pumas, North Sound SeaWolves, Sounders U23 and Washington Crossfire will have six league battles each to claim the second-annual cup that goes to the winner of Puget Sound area derby matches between the four sides. This season the competition has selected three home and three away matches for each side, a balanced home/away against the others.
The 2013 Ruffneck Cup trophy will be donated by Ruffneck Scarves (www.RuffneckWear.com). goalWA.net (www.goalWA.net) will track the standings and help award the cup. Along with the trophy one hundred 2013 Ruffneck Cup Champion scarves donated by Ruffneck Scarves will go to the club which finishes atop the derby table.
The Kitsap Pumas won the inaugural Ruffneck Cup in 2012.
