2019 Ladder

Official Rules

These are the official rules for the GTA Foosball Ladder, which are designed to make it fun and fair for all participants.  There are rules for how the Ladder will work, and rules for how each Match must be played.  Matches will be self governed, and if conflicts arise between players, they must consult these official rules to resolve it.  If the conflict is not addressed in these rules, then the players may submit an official ruling decision request by emailing the League Manager at League@gtafoosball.ca and they will get back to you as soon as possible with a verdict.

Keep in mind that first and foremost, we are playing for fun.  Please respect each other at all times!
