The international event started back in 2012 when Team USA beat Team Europe in the UK.
In 2013 the competiton was held in Berlin, Germany, with Team World defeating Team USA, while last year the event saw four teams compete, with Team USA provng too strong for Team Canada, Team Europe and Team Australia.
