USTSF:  WHO ARE WE? 

In 2002, the United States Table Soccer Federation (USTSF), a non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington, was formed and became one of the first member organizations to affiliate with the International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF).  An all-volunteer staff of veteran professional player-promoters coordinates the USTSF: Larry Davis, Executive Director (CO), Bruce Nardoci (NC), David Radack (TX), Shelly Langley (CO), Cissi Whipple (TX), Tony Alvaro (NC), and Jim Stevens (CA); with additional assistance from Mury Johnson (MN), Pat Ryan (MD), Ed Geer (TX), Melissa Kegg (OH), Shaun Cooper (MN), Mark Winker (FL), and Terry & Tiffany Moore (IL).  The combined USTSF Staff has over 150 years of experience with table soccer from competitive play, arcade management, and route operating, to tour staff, tournament direction, manufacturer sales and product promotions.     

USTSF:  WHAT DO WE DO? 

The USTSF acts as the United States' officially designated liaison between the ITSF and the various USA-based “member” foosball organizations (e.g., the United States Table Soccer Association [USTSA], Bonzini USA, Independent Foosball Promotions [IFP], etc.) as well as all the table manufacturers and the United States Olympic Committee.  The objectives of the USTSF are: 

1.  To act as the representative agency for the United States in relation to the ITSF, coordinating all affiliated table soccer associations in meeting the ITSF’s requirements for Olympic Sport recognition/status, 

2.  To establish and or coordinate qualification status of players to represent the United States in international competition,

3.  To extensively promote the sport of table soccer to players and the public alike, from youth to adult, and from grass-roots all the way up to international competition levels,

4.  To ensure fair and equitable representation of U.S. players and play standards in relation to international competition, rules, disciplinary action, rankings and more, and

5. To ethically help grow the sport of table soccer independently of manufacturers and without regard to race, religion or nationality. 

USTSF:  HOW CAN YOU HELP? 

Recommendation:  Sponsor USTSF and Team USA!!

The U.S. National Table Soccer Federation is actively seeking varied levels of sponsorships, donations, and/or other related support, both in its efforts to promote table soccer (a.k.a. “foosball”) throughout the USA and in support of the U.S. National Table Soccer Team as they compete in the upcoming International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF) World Championships Finals in Europe.  For more information, please click here.

Recommendation:  Support USTSF Community Involvement/Sport Development Programs!!

For example, in an effort to increase grass roots promotions, increase visibility of the sport, and give back to the community the USTSF is establishing and/or building a number of development programs, such as Tables for Troops, Tables for Kids, and Wounded Warriors. All of the above are examples of programs for which USTSF must seek sponsors/donors and volunteers in order to fully realize their contributions to the community and to the future of the sport. For more information, please click here.

USTSF:  WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU!!

The USTSF can provide you or your business with the opportunity to take advantage of the rapid growth of this sport, from the local grass roots, youth center, dorm and sports bar level all the way up through international tournament competition.  More importantly, this is an opportunity that provides your business with excellent media exposure in return for your marketing investment – exposure that reaches far beyond the local softball or bowling team sponsorship of providing logo’d shirts in exchange for a tax deduction.  Sponsorships and/or donations to the USTSF, in addition to supporting Team USA, provide the following benefits (see our current Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities document for sponsorship levels and benefits and more info). Each level entitles the sponsor/donor to various levels of benefits – sponsorship exposure from our professional press release distribution alone is worth more than the Gold Sponsorship level (our last three press releases had more than 550,000 hits/views and were "picked up" by over 1,500 media outlets worldwide).  And remember, events such as the ITSF World Championships Finals are international athletic competitions and players competing from the USA are "Team USA" -- a team entirely composed of proven champions representing the United States in competition against the champions from some 20-30 other countries.  As such, sponsor/donors will in fact receive both local and long-term, widespread international media exposure as well!!

To become a sponsor at any level, please contact the USTSF directly, or to make a donation now to USTSF and our community involvement/sport development programs, please click on the "Make a Donation" button below.
