The BBF Cup will involve games between teams from the National Baseball League (NBL) and the AAA South division, drawn at random as in football's FA Cup. This should create some great match-ups between old foes as well as creating new rivalries.
Cup games will take place over three weekends during the season, with the Cup Final being played in September after the National Baseball Championships (NBCs).
The opportunity for the Federation to launch the BBF Cup has come about because of a reduced number of teams this year in the NBL, leaving room in the schedule for more games.
The BBF will make an announcement shortly on the scope of the BBF Cup in 2015, the dates involved, and how the competition will fit into the NBL and AAA South schedules.
The BBF Board hopes that the Cup competition will add interest to the season and draw fans from different areas to watch games between teams that don't normally get to play each other. The Board will look to expand the BBF Cup to the other AAA divisions next season.
