The HDWSBBL Challenge Cup was introduced as the PitRat Cup and was only considered a minor cup for the 2507/08 season.
The cup was created to allow the newer teams to the league to participate in a simple knock-out tournament to gain more experience and a chance to win some silverware. The tournament proved a huge success and brought teams from North and South battle it out for the title. At the end of the tournament and the 2507/08 season problems arised as teams complained the fact that the cup should be open to all teams not just the newer ones. The board then decided that since it was a big success and the fact that there wouldn’t be a lot of newer teams next season, the HDWSBBL Challenge Cup was born. This is now a major championship and all teams in the HDWSBBL can enter. The final always takes place in the HDWSBBL stadium.
This Championship Cup is unique in that it takes its name from the sponsor. Initially it was Sponsored by the PitRat bar (produced by NetSlay) but was later sponsored by Zombway (“Eat Flesh”) & also sports broadcaster Sly Sports.
This alongside the World Championship Super Bowl and either Conference Cup form the HDWSBBL Grand Slam.
- This Championship had a three seasons break from 2511-2514. The cup returned in the 2514-15 season as, The Sly Sports Challenge Cup 2514-15.
- To date, no team has ever retained this Championship Cup, and no team has ever won this Championship twice.
