ippf finals weekend schedule
Every year, the "Elite 8" teams earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the IPPF Finals in New York City. The following is an overview of the weekend activities planned for the 2021 IPPF Finals.
(Note: Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our IPPF competitors. Should we be unable to host the event in New York in 2021 due to COVID-19, we will host an online IPPF Finals the same weekend, with a judging panel that will include NYU President Emeritus John Sexton and Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors Partner William A. Brewer III.)
