The MAJORS has announced all the teams who were invited and have accepted invitations to their 2018 event. The 24 invited teams will compete in Indianapolis, on January 26, 2018.  The MAJORS is one of the most anticipated and exclusive events of the season. You’ll most likely recognize the teams invited this year, as all but just a few have been before.

Fun Facts: 

  • These 24 teams have won 45 World Championship titles
  • Top Gun Lady Jags, Twist & Shout Diamonds, KC Cheer Fierce 5, and Cheer Athletics RoyalCats will compete at The MAJORS for the first time
  • All of the All Girl teams have won The Cheerleading Worlds at least once.

New this year, The MAJORS announced a few of the factors that influenced their decision to include these teams in this season’s event. Most of the factors have to do with previous MAJORS titles, World Championship wins, or an individual aspect of their team that makes them stand out (tumbling, stunting, showmanship, etc). We’ve included the factors next to the team names below.
