On that day in 2006 the AMOA assigned the rights of the then defunct IFPA over to Steve Epstein and Roger Sharpe to see if they could elevate the awareness and visibility of pinball across the globe.
The World Pinball Player Rankings now has over 39,000 players from 41 countries, and the events being run by the IFPA continue to expand. Country Championship Series have started in Australia, Austria, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, to go along with the continued series in the US and Canada.
This week will kick off an insane month with the inaugural IFPA Women’s World Pinball Championship, 3rd annual IFPA US National Pinball Championship and the 3rd annual IFPA Pin-Masters. Shortly thereafter the 13th annual IFPA World Pinball Championship will be taking place in Pittsburgh featuring the 4th annual Epstein Cup.
Thanks to everyone for the continued support, but most importantly to the hundreds of volunteers that help the IFPA truly cover the globe in competitive pinball 24/7. We’re looking forward to seeing where we can take things in the years ahead!
