The IFPA North American Championship Series is an annual pinball competition with players qualifying throughout the entire calendar year. Included in the NACS are the IFPA State Championship Series in the United States, IFPA Provincial Championship Series in Canada and the IFPA District Championship Series in Washington D.C. At the end of each calendar year, the top 16 ranked players (or 24) with the most WPPR points from each state will qualify for the playoffs, where they will play for the title of IFPA State/Province/District Champion within that area.

From there, these champions will be invited to play for the IFPA North American Pinball Championship, details of which can be found in the Official Rules.

All 2018-19 IFPA State/Provincial/District Championships will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018. With all of the Championships being held on the same day, no player will be eligible to compete for multiple titles, however it is possible for someone to qualify for a Championship in a State/Province/District in which they do not live in.
