Championship Schedule 2019 – First Draft

It’s that time of year again where we release the first draft of the upcoming seasons’ schedule.

2019 sees some new Championship Series contests as well as a decent boost in estimated prize purses thanks to our awesome event Promoters and their sponsors.

A second draft release will be available in early December 2018 where a handful more events will be added to the Championship Series for 2019.

New Zealand events, Steak Cookoff Association events and also ABA Lite (Self Sanction) events will be a key feature of 2019 and these events will be listed as they lock in via the upcoming events page –
