'Blades & Solar Bears to Compete For Wawa Sunshine Cup

ESTERO, FL – The Florida Everblades are pleased to announce the team’s participation in the Inaugural Wawa Sunshine Cup Series with their in-state rivals the Orlando Solar Bears.

The Wawa Sunshine Cup will be awarded to the team with the most standings points earned in the head-to-head meetings between the two teams during the 2015-16 regular season.  In the event of a tie in points, the first tie-breaker will be the highest number of goals scored, followed by fewest number of goals allowed.

'We are thrilled to welcome a great new partner in Wawa, as well as to work with the Orlando Solar Bears to create the Wawa Sunshine Cup concept," said Everblades Vice President of Sales & Marketing Chris Palin.  "The Sunshine Cup will provide excitement for both fan bases, and will help enhance the rivalry between the two in-state rivals."

The Everblades and Solar Bears meet a total of 14 times during the 2015-16 regular season, with six of the contests played at Germain Arena and eight at the Amway Center in Orlando.

The Everblades picked up a pair of wins in the first two meetings of the season back on November 7 & 8 in Orlando, and lead the Wawa Sunshine Cup Series with a 2-0-0 mark and a 4-0 lead in points.  The two teams will meet again this Wednesday (December 16) at Germain Arena beginning at 7:30 p.m. The following is the full schedule of games between the two teams this season:
