In what many are calling the craziest day in competitive pinball history across the US, the IFPA held the culmination of the first State Championship Series with 28 simultaneous State Championships held from coast to coast. Over 440 players battled through elimination brackets until only 28 remained to earn the title of IFPA State Pinball Champion. By winning their respective State Championships, these players have earned the right to represent that state in the first ever IFPA US National Pinball Championship, scheduled for Sunday, May 18th, 2014 in Lyons, CO. Nearly $3000 in cash and prizes will be up for grabs, along with the title of National Pinball Champion.
We would like to thank the countless number of IFPA volunteers that helped make something like the SCS even possible to pull off, and to all the participants for making it out to compete. We're excited to announce that the SCS will continue for the 2014 season, so look for standings to be updated soon. Full results for most of the states can now be found in the past results page, but here is the master list of the current IFPA State Pinball Champions!
