Central Canada Cup Challenge
The second annual Central Canada Cup Challenge is an interleague all-star tournament hosted by Wellington, Ontario. The event runs December 27–29, 2012. The name of the event has been slightly altered from the 2011 event, probably in response to the creation of the Western Canada Cup by their rival Western leagues.
