Viking Invitational Update Logo.png

Welcome to the Viking Invitational Foundation! Founded in 2020, our mission is to bring a very competitive Boys and Girls tournament to the St. E Center over the holidays. Our committee works tirelessly to provide a competitive and dynamic basketball event that raises awareness and funds for the Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware.


Joe Papili is the Tournament Director and is assisted by John Gretchen, former Director of the Diamond State Classic. We are expanding our tournament to include 24 boys and girls teams for the 2023 season. Interest is catching on quickly with teams from all over the nation asking to be included in future years.


In an effort to give back to our surrounding community during the holiday, we also host a food drive during the tournament.  If you have any questions, please use the tab below to contact us.  We hope to see all of you on December 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th at the St. E Center for 4 full days of great basketball!
