Capital One To Double Total Prize Pool For The 2020-2021 Capital One Cup Season

At Capital One, we’re committed to supporting our customers, partners, and communities through this difficult time, including student athletes. That’s why we’re excited to announce that for the 2020-2021 college sports season, the Capital One Cup will recognize the top five men’s and women’s Division I college athletics programs and award a total of $800K in student-athlete scholarships.

Because of the Coronavirus pandemic and its impacts on college sports, we did not award 2019-2020 Capital One Cup winners. As such, for the 2020-2021 college sports season, we are doubling the amount donated to student athlete scholarship funds from $400K to $800K and increasing the number of award recipients from the top men’s and women’s Division I college athletics programs to the top five men’s and women’s Division I college athletics programs.

The amount Capital One will award to student athlete scholarship funds are as follows:

Men's Women's
Champion $200,000 $200,000
2nd Place $100,000 $100,000
3rd Place $50,000 $50,000
4th Place $30,000 $30,000
5th Place $20,000 $20,000

The 2020-2021 season will be the 10th year the Capital One Cup has been awarded, and to date, Capital One has donated more than $4 million to Student Athlete Scholarship Funds, half of which have gone to support women’s athletics programs.

We are staying in close communication with the NCAA about any potential changes to college sports and the championship schedule. Should any competition be cancelled, we will adjust our scoring structure accordingly and provide additional updates as necessary.

One winning men's and one winning women's program will be crowned after the completion of the final NCAA spring championships. Capital One will award a combined $800,000 in student-athlete scholarships and the Capital One Cup trophy to the winning schools at the ESPY awards in July.
