The 5th annual IFPA European Championship Series saw 929 players compete across 15 events throughout Europe. The top 64 finalists faced off in Germany at the ECS Final where Italy’s Roberto Pedroni defeated fellow countryman Danny Iuliano to capture the title of IFPA European Pinball Champion.
The event was streamed on JDL_PINBALL’s channel. The final match is available to watch via Youtube HERE.
The 2019-20 ECS season is in full swing right now. Click HERE for details.
Adam Becker has let me know that his wifi in Punta Cana just isn’t strong enough to be able to approve calendar submissions and results this week. We know how anxious tournament directors and players are to see their calendar submissions approved and results posted quickly, so we wanted to let you know that approvals will not be happening this week.
If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard back from the IFPA regarding your event, that’s why.
Adam will be back next week. If you see him in Punta Cana feel free to bug him about the importance of your approval.
Monday June 3rd brings us the Hot Monday Tournament. Details of that event is available HERE.
Wednesday June 5th brings us the Mid-Week Pin-Golf Cup. Details of that event is available HERE.
The 7th edition of the Epstein Cup where the 8 best players from Europe battle the 8 best players from North America will happen Thursday night, June 6th.
Finally, Sunday, June 9th, IFPA’s World Championship Week concludes with the crowning of the new World Pinball Champion.
