Included below is information about how to become a part of the Southern Foosball Program. If you're interested, or your already involved, in promoting foosball in some way I'd love to use this Program to help you in anyway that I can. Whether your a business interested in hosting foosball tables and/or possibly tournaments or league events, or if your simply a player already involved organizing local foosball activities and need a forum for announcements and exposure, the Southern Foosball Program is available and ready to provide promotional services to those interested. However, just like in the real world, where there are services rendered, there are fees involved.
These services have been established and offered as a result of constant inquiries by pockets of foosball enthusiasts and foosball table operators scattered throughout the region, all requesting services like those that I have described below. I'm sorry that I cannot offer these services for free, the set-up & work involved is much more time-consuming than time that I have to spare. However, continuous requests for these services has finally motivated me to add the necessary staff needed to handle these chores. Promotional services like what I have described below are now available for those interested and willing to help cover the cost created by them.
The "Southern Foosball Program" primarily operates in locations affiliated with Tornado of Alabama and those locations establishing, in some way, a "Sponsoring" relationship with the Program. Listed below is information and fair pricing for promotional services that are commonly requested.

Depending on the size and type event to be presented, there can be expenses along with quite a few tasks that need to be performed in order to insure the best success.

Included are expenses to be considered, as well as, pricing for service fees involved in having the Program's staff perform these tasks.

Sent to the top known possible participants within $100 miles would be $100 and so on....

Dedicated to promoting the sport of foosball! for more than twenty years..... Yeah right! .....I'll have to admit, my interest in this game-sport, over the years, has motivated me sometimes to go beyond the call of duty. At times I've pulled off some tasks that, well, if my daytime job boss had ask me to do, I'd quickly have told him just how far he could "take this job and shove it!". A few years ago, reality presented itself rudely before me and I suddenly realized that I had to draw some boundary lines to my sacrifices during my foosball promotional efforts. Although I would love to offer my promotional ability, tools, and services available at no-charge and simply for the benefit of this sport, there are expenses involved that I have to consider.
I simply must manage all my present, and future, promotional efforts in a way that will allow them to fully fund themselves--start to finish; for several reasons this has become "priority #1". In order to secure my relationship with sponsors, I must require any business benefiting from the Program and it's website to help with the operating expenses involved.
