A few months back in Sweden, the IFPA set a new record with the most countries represented at a World Pinball Championship in competitive pinball history. 64 of the world's best pinball players traveled far and wide from 16 countries to battle one another in the most mentally, emotionally and physically taxing pinball tournament format ever created. After the final ball drained, [player]Cayle George[/player] from Seattle became the new World Pinball Champion.
We are proud to announce that the 9th installment of IFPA's World Pinball Championship has officially been scheduled. More details will be added to the official IFPA9 website as they become available. 2012 finds the World Pinball Championship heading back to the USA, where Seattle will play host the weekend of June 8th through June 10th.
The Northwest Pinball Championships will be an official IFPA9 Satellite Tournament, where you can win an automatic spot into the World Pinball Championship. We will be using our World Pinball Player Rankings as of January 1, 2012 to fill a majority of the championship spots, so get out there and earn your WPPR points.
With two months left on the calendar, there are still plenty of qualifying spots up for grabs! Best of luck to all the players out there!
