BFA CUP TEAM LEAGUE POSTER

GET READY TO REGISTER YOUR TEAM FOR 2017

For more information please contact yakadiazit@yahoo.it

A Registered BFA Foosball Club, at its most basic, consists of four or more players, at least one foosball table, and a team captain, which is registered as a club with the BFA.

In most European countries, foosball is organised on a club structure.
Club membership is the way forward to organise grass-roots foosball in the UK, linking local players into the national scene.

We are providing an easy-to-use club structure with low-maintenance, which can apply to any type of venue or club.

Clubs provide a vital point of contact drawing new players in the area together and providing a focal point for organised foosball sessions and social activities.

Clubs must adhere to official rules and any specified requirements of the BFA (e.g. regarding non-discrimination, democratic structure, accounting etc)

 BFA Club Trophy

 A Guide For Clubs

The BFA Club Trophy is a season-long competition amongst all British table football clubs. A season lasts a full calendar year. Clubs compete against each other by scoring points at tournaments. The amount of points a club scores at a tournament is determined by how well that club’s players perform in the tournament events. At the end of the season a prize will go to the club with the most points.

Club Entry Requirements: Any registered BFA Club may enter the BFA Club Trophy, and they may do so at any time during the season. If you are a group of players that aren’t part of a club then you can either join one of our existing clubs by getting in touch with them, or register your own club for free.

Included Tournaments: Any tournament in the UK of a sufficient size and quality is eligible to be included as one at which clubs can score points in the Club Trophy. Each tournament is judged on its own merits for inclusion, and a decision is then made by the BFA committee before the event is announced. Tournaments are judged mainly on accessibility and scale, but unless there are extenuating circumstances then almost all BFA certified tournaments will be included.

Submitting Your Players: In order for us to know which players at a tournament are representing the various clubs, we ask that your players fill out a pre-registration form before the event. On this form will be a section in which they can specify the club that they play for. This will both register them with your club at the tournament, and notify the organisers of their attendance and the events in which they will play. Electronic pre-registration forms will be made available leading up to each tournament, and can be submitted on our website.

Scoring Points: A player’s finishing position in the events that they’ve entered determines how many points they score for their club. In the Open events, points are given out to clubs with players that place in tenth position or higher. In other events points are given out to clubs with players that place in fifth position or higher. For a full breakdown of the points given out by position, take a look at the points breakdown.

Viewing Results: Shortly after each tournament we’ll publish a breakdown of how the clubs have performed, and update our league table. We’ll also publish information about each player’s performance so that your club can see who is winning the most points.
