Those enlisted to join our league (along with their faithful sidekicks) will be assigned the task of representing their country and showing the rest of the world how awesome they are! We wish we could bring you ALL along… so if you can’t come, we’ll be posting info on how you can get involved online very soon!

This is going to be EPIC. We cannot even begin to tell you….
