The tournament is sanctioned by the Ukrainian Sports Federation of the USA and Canada and the Michigan Soccer Association. The soccer tournament is for men’s teams in both the Open and Over 30 divisions. Each team will be scheduled for a minimum of three games. The Champion will have their name engraved on the traveling trophy to be displayed for a year at their Club or local Ukrainian Credit Union.

The history of the Great Lakes Cup is that of a soccer tournament hosted by Ukrainian clubs in cities that surround the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Cup was born nine years ago following a discussion between the Directors of soccer clubs, "Chernyk" of Detroit, "Ukraina" of Toronto and "Lviv" of Cleveland. The first two years saw the tournament hosted by the Detroit club, but after witnessing a growth in the tournament, the GLC committee decided that the tournament should be hosted by the other cities surrounding the Great Lakes as well.
