A WORLD OF TABLEFOOTBALL - Tablesoccer in Hungary

Hungary

Do extra-terrestrial beings exist? – the Noble Prize winning Italian physicist, Enrico Fermi, was once asked by his disciples in California.
Of course, Fermi answered – they are here among us, they are called Hungarians

For some reason Hungary holds a great attraction.
Think of …
Gulash – Die Czardas-Fürstin – Exciting violin music – The Balaton Lake

And lots of table football ! “Csocsó”

Only one federation as far as I was able to find out :

Tables :

The most popular table in Hungary is Garlando, and especially model Maracaná. Because that is the one closest to the Garlando World-Cup table.
Maracanà is a bit lighter, with short springs, but less expensive and has become very popular since the preparatory tournaments for the World Cup 2002

Many Hungarian Top players cross the border to go and compete in Austria,
where they take part in the tournaments.
Particularly the Garlando World Cup at Oberwart, which is close to the Hungarian border, drew a lot of candidates.
Ever since 2002 table football fever has striken Hungaria!
While there used to be about 200 tournament players, that number has grown to about 800 players by the end of 2002, and counting.
Every week end, somewhere in Hungary, tournaments are organized.
