Regional crossover events between the Sunshine State Conference and Gulf South Conference have been occurring for well over a decade, with past set-ups including smaller eight-team tournaments between the two conferences, as well as larger events where teams from both conferences were hosted at separate locations based on overall seedings.
The current one-of-a-kind event that fans know and love today, with both the SSC and GSC teams all under one roof for a multi-day tournament, kicked off in 2015 when it was held at the Coliseum on the campus of the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Ga. The multi-day round-robin tournament in 2015 was the first of its kind, and featured 22 teams in total - 11 from the GSC, as well the nine members from them SSC plus then-provisional members Palm Beach Atlantic and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Each team played three matches over the course of two days, with a maximum of four matches being played at one time.
