The U.S National Kubb Championship is the largest kubb tournament outside of Europe. It is one of three, two-day tournaments in the world, along with the World Championship and the Swedish Championship.

Kubb is a game for all, and the U.S. Championship is a tournament for all. From first-time players to past champions, all skill levels and experience are welcome. Participants have ranged between six years old and in their 80s. The top eight teams return Sunday morning for the quarterfinals, semi finals, bronze medal match, and Final.

Kubb is an old Nordic game. Starting roughly 25 years ago, the game exploded throughout the Nordic countries. Over the past 10 years, kubb has had significant growth in Europe and the U.S. The Upper Midwest is currently home to the majority of recreational and competitive kubb activity in the U.S.

On December 13, 2011, through the City Council, Eau Claire, WI officially became the Kubb Capital of North America. Throughout the year, the U.S. Championship takes part in numerous local activities and events to promote kubb. The U.S. Championship is one of many kubb tournaments, leagues, and events in the Eau Claire area.
