Welcome to the IFPA15 Registration Page!
The IFPA is pleased to announce the 15th annual IFPA World Pinball Championship! It will be held June 1st-3rd, 2018 at Press Start Arcade in Keswick, Ontario, Canada!
You can find complete details and rules for IFPA15 here. Utilizing its World Pinball Player Rankings, the IFPA is using the January 1st, 2018 rankings to determine 62 of the 64 qualifiers for IFPA15. The top 2 available ranked players from each eligible country as of 1/1/2018 will receive an automatic qualifying spot into the tournament via a "Country Exemption". Should either of the top 2 players not be able to attend, that country exemption will move down the country ranking list until it is filled. The rest of the field will be made up of the most highly ranked players from the WPPR list. For players that cannot attend, spots will be filled by going down the rankings list. Should a country not fill the 2 spots awarded to it, additional at-large spots will be available.
Please note that for the Country Exemption spots, while you can continue to represent any country you wish on your profile (whether that be where you currently live, or where you were from), we will require that a player participates in at least one event in the calendar year in the country that they are representing in order to be eligible for that Country Exemption spot.
Registration is now open and will close on Janurary 21st at 6pm CST. We've included the top 100 on this initial invite list. We will go deeper if necessary, but there is a chance that not everyone on this list will be eligible to participate.
If you have any questions or know that you will not be attending, please email the IFPA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Registration closes on Janurary 21st at 6pm CST.
- The IFPA must receive a player's payment in order for that player to be officially registered.
- Players must send their payment by mail, paypal or give the money to Josh Sharpe directly.
- Once registration closes, any player on this list that hasn't paid will be ineligible to participate.
- After fulfilling the Country Exemptions, the IFPA will confirm the additional At-Large bids for the tournament based on the highest ranked players that have paid their registration fee and committed to playing.
- Once the entry spots have been filled, those who had paid registration fees but did not make the cut will have their fee refunded, but kept on a list (in order of rank) to be eligible as backups in case someone drops out.
We are offering a discount for players who register before January 15th. Those players that register early will receive either $20 off registration, or a free IFPA15 t-shirt. There is an added $10 charge for those paying via Paypal to cover the Paypal fees.
Registration fee structure is as follows:
- Registration w/t-shirt (through Jan 21st): $270
- Registration (through Jan s1st): $250
Your registration can be paid using PAYPAL or by sending a check. You may also pay Josh Sharpe directly.
If you choose to get a T-shirt, please indicate the size you want with your registration payment.
