AZ FOOSBALL TOURNAMENT RULES
STINGER'S SPORTS BAR
Prizes & Payouts:
A typical AZ Foosball event will generate a prize pool consisting of all entry fees plus a "per player" added bonus, to be paid to the top placing teams. The exact payout structure is dependent upon the number of teams or events, and will be determined by the tournament director soon after the start of the event(s).
Early Registration Prizes:
AZ Foosball offers a special prize for early registration to most events. The specific prize may change for each event, but usually consists of either a free or reduced entry to a future event. The prize winner is normally drawn at random from the list of players who "pre" registered for the night's event (usually at least 1 hour before start time), providing there are at least 12 players registered. You may register early for events by visiting the "Tournaments" section of www.arizonafoosball.com. You can also receive event notifications and pre-register by text or e-mail by signing up at the website and setting your personal notifications appropriately.
For some events, AZ Foosball will provide special "point cards" to novice players. (Players with a league rating below 2.0 will receive one card, those rated below 1.0 will receive two.) These cards are valid for each match a player participates in during the tournament. Each card may be used once per match, and converted into a point or goal under the following provisions:
Ø Card(s) must be used at the start of a new point.
Ø A card may not be used to score the final/winning point of a game.
Ø The use of a point card does not change the flow of the game. (E.g., if it is a team's serve and it announces that it is converting one or more point cards, it still maintains serve.)
Ø Maximum three cards per team.
Players are ranked/classified as follows when applicable:
Behavior Penalty Protocol:
In the event of inappropriate behavior, the tournament director reserves the right to forfeit and/or suspend players from the current and future events. Although the action taken is left to the discretion of the acting tournament director, the following protocol may be applied, in order, in simple cases of player disputes:
Ø Warning to all players involved.
Ø Technical foul against the team initiating violation (a free shot from the opponent's 3-bar).
Ø Forfeit of match.
Note that egregious misconduct (e.g., physical abuse of tables or equipment or threatening another player) will result in automatic forfeit from the current event and possible suspension from future events.
