Top Ten Foosball Tables

Top Ten Foosball Tables

       Foosball or biliardino, is a table-top game and sport that is loosely based on soccer, or football. Although patents for similar games may exist from as far back as the 1890’s, the game of Table Football as we know it today was first invented by Harold Searles Thornton of the UK in 1921 and patented in 1923. The concept was conceived after Harold had been to a Tottenham Hotspur F.C. football match (he was an avid supporter). He wanted to provide a game that replicated football that could be played at home. The inspiration came from a box of matches: by laying the matches across the box he had formed the basis of his game. His uncle, Louis P. Thornton, visited Harold and took the inspiration back to the USA where it was patented in 1927. In 2002, the International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF) was established in France with the mission of promoting the sport of Table Soccer as an organizing sports body, regulating international competitions, and establishing the game with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and General Association of International Sport Federation (GAISF).
