Matteson Brothers

Austin Matteson & Connor Matteson

Brothers claim their second world title in three years

The 2018 KanJam World Championship will go down as one of the most successful tournaments to date. After the windiest year ever (2016), and the mud fest last year (2017), it was a perfect day in 2018; clear skies, limited wind, and just some great KanJamming! Officially, 94 teams from around the United States and Canada competed for a chance to win the World title. Players traveled from one Canadian province (Ontario), and 17 different states, including first time representation from Missouri, Indiana, Texas, and Arizona.

As with tradition, the tournament was held in the city where the game originated (North Tonawanda, NY) on the second Saturday in August (11th). This year also marked the 20th official KanJam World Championship, dating back to the first year in 1999 when the plastic goals were first introduced and the game was born. Prior to that, the tournament was played using metal garbage cans with no slot, and was known as the Garbage Can Disc World Championship.
