Electric Football’s “Capitol City Clash”, Buzz’s With the Fourth Leg in the Tournament of Champions!

capitolcityclash-logoThe childhood game of Electric Football thrives with new realism, strategy and competition as the 4th event of the Miniature Football Coaches Association Tournament of Champions begins at the Holiday Inn College Park, College Park, MD, April 6-8, 2018.

Electric Football was one of the most anticipated gifts by young boys on Christmas mornings throughout the 60’s and 70’s. The game eventually gave way, after selling 60 million games since its beginnings in 1945, to the video game market. However, hundreds of these boys kept the game alive into adulthood and eventually brought it back to the new level of realism and competition that it enjoys today.

The Capitol City Clash is the fourth leg in a series of six electric football tournaments with coaches coming from across the USA, competing for the championship trophy and title of “The 2018 Clash Champion”. The fifth event will be the Chattanooga Blast in Chattanooga, Tennessee in June and the final leg is held the last weekend of July in Dallas, Texas at the MFCA Electric Football Tournament of Champions Finals.

Electric Football is very competitive! The “coaches” , however, stress sportsmanship, fellowship and share strategies, painting, customizing tips and occasionally a secret “tweaking” tip. Tweaking is the term used for how to adjust the prongs on the bases of the men to get them to perform with speed, strength and specific direction.

The tournament begins Friday evening, April 6 at 6:30pm ET with a coach’s rules discussion and tailgate cookout. Pool play begins on Saturday at 8:25 am and goes throughout the day late into the evening. The final rounds and championship are played on Sunday morning.

Admission is free to the public and parents, children, football enthusiasts, gamers, and hobbyists are encouraged to attend this exciting and interactive event.
