The Gold Cup is a newly-created elite rugby competition comprising the best teams from Middle America. The top two finishing teams from the Red River and Midwest compete in a 4-way round-robin style competition with games played both home and away. Last year, the Dallas Reds and Austin Blacks were the top two finishing teams in the Red River competition. As a result, this year’s Gold Cup will be made up of the Austin Blacks, Dallas Red, Chicago Griffins and Metropolis. Regular season D1 games between the Reds and Blacks will double as Gold Cup games.
