Worldwide Foosball competition has finally arrived. On Thanksgiving Day weekend professional and amateur table soccer ("foosball") competitors will have the chance to compete and qualify for worldwide competition at the first ever Indoor Outdoor Sports Extravaganza in Las Vegas, Nevada.
America's largest and most prestigious table soccer competition in over twenty years will be held at the luxurious Rio Suites Hotel on, November 28th - 30th, 2003. Competitors from across America are encouraged to book reservations soon.
"Table soccer has arrived, big time," said Warrior Table Soccer President Brendan Flaherty, ?This event kicks off a new era in table soccer gamesmanship,"
The Rio table soccer event will offer a whopping $200,000 purse and give 'foosers' the ability to qualify for $1 million worldwide competition and the world championships.
"When it comes to the growth potential of this legitimate and mainstream sport, the sky is limit," said two-time world champion and table soccer ambassador, Johnny Lott.
"By kicking off a world wide tour that will include players from Bangkok to the Berlin Wall, and by offering a $1 million purse, our message is clear: foosball is alive and kicking, foosball is here to stay and Foosball is well on its way to Olympic Dreams," said Lott, who is known for inventing the "moving wall pass."
Warrior Golf is also proud to sponsor the Outdoor Golf event to benefit the NFL Alumni/NFL Coaches association. Players will golf in ?fivesomes? side by side with an NFL legend right there on the links. The golf event will be played on the exclusive Rio Secco and Revere golf courses. The Rio Secco Golf Club, set among the rolling foothills of the Black Mountain Range provides a world ?class golf experience. Created by legendary PGA Tour player Billy Casper, it presents a blend of beauty and challenge unlike any other in southern Nevada.
