The success of 2016 Winter Bowl, led IPSF to create a larger tournament called the Irvine Tournament of Champions, consisting of 3 tournaments (flag football, basketball, and soccer). Schools earn points for their performance in each tournament, and the school with the most points at the end of the year is awarded the Champions Cup to display at their school the following year.
