It's actually an ancient game with lots of history, I believe it was first played by the Romans.

Amateurs and Pros Bracket


How does one go about becoming a professional foosball player?

I may be willing to consider a career change.

The words pro and amateur are misnomers. If you ever played foosball in a bar and consider yourself to be really good and then go play someone ranked as an amateur, they will probably win 80 or 90 percent of the time. If you play someone that is a pro (including semi-pros and pro-masters), they should win 99 percent of the time. But the money made is at the low end of the sports spectrum so I wouldn't quit your job to become a professional foosball player (not sure what kind of money professional air hockey or ping-pong players make).

This year's Tornado World Championships in September outside of Dallas pays $8,000 for 1st place Open Doubles and $4,000 for 1st in Open Singles with $100,000 in total prizes.

I suck at foosball, but I'll be there competing.

Players beware, if you come up against a competitor with this foosball logo tattood on his forearm:

You have already lost, move on.
