Stella Baby-Foot Tour experience
The first inter-company table football tournament
Stella decided to create a new table football tournament with Tourcoing Entreprendre and the city if Tourcoing.
An inter-company tournament that brings together 150 companies from the Hauts de France region and the surrounding area. This is perfect opportunity to measure yourself against other companies.
There will be 150 teams of 2 players. It will take place on Friday 16 September 2022 from 1pm to 8pm.
A mythical place on the occasion of the Heritage Days
This tournament will take place in a mythical place of Tourcoing, the town hall. It is a historical monument that was built in the 19th century by Charles Maillard. Located in the heart of Tourcoing, this site is accessible by tram, metro, bus and car. Let's go!
A personalised football table in your company colours to be won
For the grand prize winners, there is a beautiful Champion Collector table football in your company colours to be won. This table football has a value of 2500€. There will also be prizes to be won for the participants of the tournament. Discover our 3D configurator to customise your table football.
Stella Baby-Foot has joined forces with Tourcoing Entreprendre and the city of Tourcoing to organise a tournament never before seen in France. Whether you are an amateur or a professional, join us and compete with the 150 teams present on this day who, like you, have come to play and share good times around a table football. You will have the opportunity to face a dozen teams before qualifying for the group stages until the final.
The principle of this competition is not only to show that you are baby pros but also to have fun playing. A networking room will be available for you to exchange freely with the companies present during the tournament and why not initiate new collaborations.
Food and drink stand
And for those who want more, there will be a food stand on the day. We'll keep you updated on all the partners of this event on the Facebook event page.
The course of the tournament
How will the tournament be run?
There are 150 teams divided into 15 pools of 10 teams. They are formed for qualification for the final stages. The first two teams in each pool and the two best third-placed teams will qualify for the 1/16th finals and the knockout matches. Beware, the level will be high.
