The ‘It’s a Knockout!’ Table Football Cup

The ‘It’s a Knockout!’ Table Football Cup

Anyone passing the Royal Garden Hotel in the early hours of Thursday morning could be forgiven for thinking they were in the vicinity of a football stadium, as the crowds watching this year’s ‘It’s A Knockout!’ Table Football competitors saw fans from the four corners of the world packing into The Contestants’ Lounge to witness the match.

Hosted by FanDragon Technologies, the tournament cast aside nationalistic tendencies to see a number of delegates teaming up with friends and colleagues from other countries, truly proving that [table] football remains the people’s sport.

With IQ Mag's Steve Woollett overseeing proceedings, it was fitting that the eventual competition winners embodied that international vibe, thanks to the German-Slovak alliance of eps boss Okan Tombulca and Pohoda Festival chief Michal Kascak who took home the spoils – and the prestige of being 2020 World Champions – to their respective homelands.
