The Island Cup documentary tells the story of how a high school football game has eclipsed wealth, whaling, and fame to become the center of the world for thousands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard residents each fall.
The "Island Cup" football game was born out of necessity. Teenagers from both islands may share a unique lifestyle, but that doesn’t guarantee friendship. Instead, the Island Cup has become a source of intense sibling rivalry between the two sister islands -- a battlefield to settle scores and to crown champions. The struggle for its glory has defined generations of islanders. The Island Cup documentary provides a front-row seat, previously reserved only for players and coaches, to on-the-field action and off-the-field excitement across both islands. Viewers will experience why so many fans say that the Island Cup is worth more to them than the Super Bowl. Witness a football tradition unlike any other as NCTV's Island Cup brings you miles out to sea to feel all the action, heart, and electricity.
