State championship table football tournament comes to Lansing
LANSING, Michigan – A kicker wants to share his love for the game.
Michael Stahl is organizing a state championship table football tournament in Lansing later this month, hoping to raise enough money to give away $ 10,000 in prizes.
The tournament schedules are based on 125 appearing players.
“Fifteen dollars per event is for beginners. And then I think it’s up to $ 50 for professional masters,” said Stahl.
Stahl himself is an experienced player.
“I have a semi-professional national title. I finished third a couple of times at the World Cup in France in the junior class when I was 16,” he said.
Foosball was part of his life even before he was born.
“My father was a professional player in the 90s. My mother and father won the open mixed event at the Michigan State Championships in 1996,” said Stahl. “She was eight months pregnant with me at the time, which was pretty cool.”
Stahl, who lives in Charlotte, grew up with the same passion as his parents.
He says the sport is not as popular as it used to be, but he hopes the tournament will help bring the game back to life in the Lansing area.
The event is open to all ages, everyone can take part in the competition. It will take place from October 22nd to 24th at the Causeway Bay Hotel. For further information, click here.
