We currently have 51 States and Provinces included in the NACS with over 11,000 players participating. This will all culminate in the various IFPA State Championship and Provincial Championship finals held across the continent. These finals will all be held simultaneously on January 19th, 2019, with over 1000 finalists competing for not only a State/Provincial Championship title, but also a spot in the IFPA North American Pinball Championship.
New for this year, we have currently collected over $40,000 in endorsement fees across the 1870 events that have been played in North America so far this year. Also new is the establishment of “Super States” which will expand the number of qualifiers from 16 to 24. Any State/Province with at least 400 unique players and 100 unique events will be eligible. So far through half the year we’ve already seen 4 States hit this level (Washington, Michigan, Ohio and Texas).

A reminder that the official satellite spots for the IFPA16 World Pinball Championship will come from the 2018-19 IFPA North American Pinball Championship, and the 2018-19 IFPA European Pinball Championship. The highest finisher in each final that has not yet qualified for IFPA16 will win a free spot into the World Championship.
