American Cornhole League Hosts “SuperHole III” Championships

American Cornhole League

The American Cornhole League (ACL) is excited to announce that after intense competition in prelims across the country the league will be hosting the finals to determine the winner of SuperHole III on Friday, August 5th as a part of the 2022 ACL World Championships held from July 29th – August 7th at the Rock Hill Sports & Event Center (326 Technology Center Way, Rock Hill, SC 29730). The celebrity competitors are a mix of not only prelim winners, but former champions as well, with former NFL star QB Jay Cutler, reality TV star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, former NFL Running Back Terry Kirby, 4X UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman, former NFL QB and reigning SuperHole Champion Doug Flutie, ESPN’s Marty Smith, musician Ben Rector, and HOFer and current South Carolina Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley. They will be competing alongside ACL Pro partners over the course of two rounds for $100,000 in prizes for their charities of choice, with Part 1 airing live on The Ocho on ESPN2 from 4-5pm EDT with the winners going head-to-head on Part 2 airing live on The Ocho on ESPN2 from 8-9pm EDT. First place will take home $40,000, second place $20,000, third and fourth place $10,000, and fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth $5,000 with all winnings going to charity.

What started out as an annual ACL Pro/Celebrity event played the Friday before the Big Game – the two previous SuperHole events have featured well known football stars Doug Flutie, Sam Darnold, Daniel Jones, Rashad Jennings, Mac Jones and Devonta Smith – has evolved into a multi-event cornhole “SuperHole” series consisting of prelims throughout the year. The winners of those prelims have been invited to compete for the championship. At last year’s SuperHole II Doug Flutie, alongside his ACL Pro partner Matt Guy, took home the title and earned an invitation to return to compete as the defending champion at the SuperHole III Championship. In addition, ESPN’s Marty Smith and ACL Pro Ryan Smith received invitations as defending celebrity team champions at last year’s ACL World Championships.

The first prelim was held in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay on February 11th, with former NFL Running Back Terry Kirby beating out poker icon Phil Hellmuth, CBS’ S.W.A.T. star David Lim, and Pawn Stars’ favorite Austin “Chumlee” Russell for a chance to compete in the championship. The second was hosted in Atlantic City at the Showboat, where Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino took down former NFL receiver and winner of season 16 of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” Dale Moss, star NFL lineman Dion Dawkins, and fitness influencer Callie Bundy. The third was held in Salt Lake City, where actor and fitness influencer Joseph Baena bested former NFL star turned actor Vernon Davis, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Lisa Barlow, and NFL linebacker Kyle Van Noy. The fourth was hosted in CBS’ S.W.A.T. star Shamar Moore’s literal backyard, nicknamed “Airmail City” which he has transformed into a cornhole oasis, where Moore took down UFC legend Chuck Lidell, TV host Michelle Phelps, and NFL pro Greg Gaines to secure his spot in the finals. The final prelim was put on at the Wintrust sports Complex in Chicago, where former NFL star QB Jay Cutler came out on top against food personality and chef Jeff Mauro, former NFL RB and current media personality Jarrett Payton, actor Caleb Castille, former NFL TE and budding country artist Zach Miller, and country music star Brett Young.
