At the end of the eight days, the scores will be tallied and the winner will be given a trophy and snazzy wrestling style belt, not to mention the title of Ballina Cup Champion.

In The End
The Ballina Cup will be taking place at the homes of the individual competitors and streaming on Instagram because everyone involved is practicing the social distancing guidelines that the CDC has put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19.
While fans and people around the world are being quarantined with stay-at-home orders, watching a tournament like the Ballina Cup could prove to be very interesting.
And all the money that is made from the championship going toward charities helping with the virus makes the whole idea of the Cup that much better for the bettor. The tournament is set to begin next week.
