It took just under 3 years for our app to have 10,000 user accounts: On 5th of March 2020 our journey started and the LET'S FOOS community with all of you was born! We have two events coming up in April and May that we are involved in: The 11th Silpion Kicker Cup (SKC) and the JOBKICKOFF!
It almost went down a little during our event organization since January, but instead we want to give you a proper high-five now: On 2nd of March 2023 we welcomed the 10,000th user! And each and every one of you is part of the LET'S FOOS universe. Therefore a high five with each and every one of you!
Our little team has experienced ups and downs with you, but we're holding on once again:
We love to get your feedback every time, whether negative or too all loving informative, helpful and appreciative! We are always happy when we see that daily on the world LET'S FOOS tournaments are played and the rankings keep growing. Even if it sometimes takes a little longer, it is a great pleasure to read and enter your submissions and changes to public foosball locations.
With our sociable playing mode we want to promote the joy of foosball and make it possible to play quickly and spontaneously in a nice round. We want to make the sport of foosball visible in the hobby area and the foosball map should show all public foosball tables - no matter which model - of this world someday :) And we want to develop further things for and with you and for the game and the sport, everything at its time, but in any case after the slogan: LET'S FOOS!
On April 21st, the 11th Silpion Kicker Cup happens, SKC for short. More than 200 corporate teams will be there to kick the evening and night at 100 foosball tables, to chat and just have a good time. This time, the largest foosball tournament in the world (world record in 2020) will take place in the Millerntor Stadium of the magical FC St. Pauli. In the process, the main grandstand will be transformed into a foosball paradise over two floors with a view of the lawn. Our colleagues from Silpion Events are producing and we are allowed to "manage" the tournament with app and backend. Additional info: On April 22/23, the setup will be handed over to the FCSP and the DTFB, who are hosting a world ranking tournament and expect over 500 international players.
And then the first JOBKICKOFF, a job event that we have helped to develop over the last few months, will take place on 5th of May. A good ten companies and 200 students and high school graduates from the STEM field have registered so that we can experience the best possible matches for job searches or future career paths. As a playful element, the participants will play a round of KOMM KICKERN. We are curious to see how foosball and laughter will be played, as a possible basis for a good understanding among each other :)
Our health partner Die Techniker (TK) will of course also be present at both events and we are happy that we are also going a great way together in 2023.
Actually, we always look hopefully at our sorted backlog list with all the app enhancements and features you and we wish for. Unfortunately, at the moment we just don't have the time to continue here in a big way. But: Now you can easily create LET'S FOOS accounts via a Google or Apple account. And: For the 2nd half of the year we want to "start" something with Kickertool - stay tuned and at the foosball ball ;-)
Jan is a trained physicist and now project manager and tries to keep track of what's coming up, when and how. As far as foosball is concerned, organizing has become his passion in recent years, in Hamburg as Vice President of the TFVHH and throughout Germany as Vice President Education at the DTFB - and he also finds events with "world" in the name quite good...
