It's that time of year again... time for Stablecade! Your envelope should contain a sign-up form, and you can also download a PDF version from the Results page of our website.

Groups need to enter at least five members. If you don't belong to any particular faction, you can still participate: wrestlers without stable initials compete as a single stable of free agents.

Your grapplers can take home $100K for their efforts, and speaking of that number...

Sean Storm claimed the Iron Federation title for manager Michael Eaves this cycle, bringing Michael's career total federation championships to an even 100! He asked that we commemorate this truly historic achievement by sharing a special gift with the whole IWA community, and we were happy to oblige. Therefore, in each league that reaches 100 cards this cycle, every active manager can take 10 free matches in that league next time!
