The winning player and team will be awarded a custom ACO Illinois State Championship jersey and each player will win a $250.00 Golden Ticket entry to compete in ACO World Championships of Cornhole IX, being played out in Charleston, WV, July 15-19, 2014.

It is the goal of American Cornhole to have an ACO State Championships of Cornhole in every state by Season X, June 2015. There currently are fifteen states committed to the program which include AL, FL, IL, IN, GA, KY, MA, MD, MO, NC, NM, PA, OH, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA and WV with another several states close to signing on for Season IX, to be played in June 2014.

“In addition to being crowned Illinois State Champions, the Titles will also carry a lot of weight heading into the ACO World Championships of Cornhole,” says Eric Hinerman, Director of Certified Officials for the ACO. The ACO World Championships of Cornhole is the premier Cornhole Event every year and all State Singles and Doubles Champions will bypass the Qualifying rounds at the Worlds and be placed directly into the King of Cornhole and/or World Doubles final brackets. “These State Champions will have the opportunity to come to the ACO World Championships of Cornhole, and in some cases, be the very first players from their States to represent in the King of Cornhole and World Doubles final brackets. It gives you a shot at the biggest Titles in the Cornhole World!” claimed Eric Hinerman.
