BREAKING: NLL Announces Landmark Partnership With TSN Read More


Alterna Cup

The Alterna Cup, a competition among all five Canadian clubs, will return for the 2021-22 NLL regular season. Calgary, Halifax, Saskatchewan, Toronto, and Vancouver will compete for the honorable Alterna Cup. This Cup was created in partnership with Alterna Bank and Alterna Savings, who put “The Good in Banking”™. Alterna Bank and Alterna Savings is the exclusive banking partner of the NLL in Canada.

With the help of Alterna, the NLL has created a one-of-a-kind trophy that will be awarded to the winning team at the end of the regular season. The trophy features the famed Canadian Maple Leaf as the focal point.

To capture the Cup, Canadian teams compete in head-to-head matchups throughout the NLL regular season. The standings are based on the win percentage of these matchups among the five Canadian teams. The League tracks every team’s wins and losses, which will calculate each team’s win percentage. When a team wins a Cup matchup it will increase their overall win percentage and move them up in the standings. With a limited Alterna Cup schedule, each matchup is important for standings. If, at the conclusion of the regular season, two Canadian teams have the same win percentage, the winner of the Alterna Cup will be based on specific tiebreakers. The tiebreakers for the Cup are as follows and in order of how they will be implemented to determine a winner: head to head results, goal differential between the 2 teams, goal differential between the 2 teams in Alterna Cup games, overall NLL record, and overall NLL season goal differentials.
