West Coast Regional Tournament

Earlier this month, WAKA hosted its first West Coast Regional Tournament in L.A. with plenty of sun, food, and an awesome after party. The Kicktators from Long Beach took home the cup defeating SoCal Riot from San Diego in the finals. Among the highlights were a series of very competitive gamers, lunch at the fields from the Kogi BBQ food truck, and an impromptu pick up game that was full of silliness and debauchery. Teams closed out the night in Hollywood with beer pong and a big dance party. Click through our exclusive photo gallery from the entire weekend.
