Japanese Footbag Champs 2020

Post by C-Fan » 18 Aug 2020 11:25

Looks like JFC is going to be held online this year, similar to how Worlds was done. It appears a lot more detail will be coming out on September 6, but for now it looks like the key dates are:

:arrow: September 6: rules announced
:arrow: September 6-October 31: period for submitting video entries
:arrow: November 3: results announced

Also appears they are still figuring out what events they are doing. But as of right now, there are 3 official events:

:arrow: Shred30
:arrow: Sick 3
:arrow: Drill contest

And unofficially Sick One, as well as a video contest?

Also not clear if this is only open to Japanese players, or if anybody can participate.

Looks like it's open to anybody who currently lives in Japan. That's pretty cool. That means TJ or me could have competed when we lived there. I'm not sure if I'm aware of any foreign footbaggers living in Japan at the moment, but I'm still pleased they phrased it the way they did. More inclusive than saying "Japanese nationals only."
