Sin City Classic I

The Sin City Classic is a multi-day LGBTQ+ sports festival hosted annually by The Greater Los Angeles Softball Association (GLASA) in Las Vegas during the four days prior to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Started in 2008, the event has grown to become the largest annual LGBTQ+ sporting event in the world. USQ will be joining the event in 2022 as its 25th sport. 

The tournament will take place at Anthem Park in Henderson, Nevada.

This event is for USQ club teams only. It does not count as a USQ regional championship, and therefore will not fulfill a bid requirement to attend US Quidditch Cup 2022.
