Oakland is the largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, where several of the largest and oldest footbag clubs are working together to put this event on. Among the clubs represented are the Bay Area Footbag Club (BAFL), Stanford University Footbag Club, Chaos Footbag Club, Santa Cruz Footbag Club and the United Flyers of Sonoma (UFOS). These clubs are working together to bring the worlds to life and deliver a well-run event.

We have a great venue and accommodations and look forward to hosting the footbag world. The Oakland Marriott and Convention Center will play host for this all-in-one venue. These two complexes are attached with complete safety and ease of travel for the players. It is literally a two-minute walk -- completely indoors -- between the hotel lobby and the convention center. On top of that, the BART train system has an exit just in front of the hotel's main entrance for those who are not staying in the host hotel.

Net Qualifying Information: Singles eliminations and Mixed Doubles starts Sunday August 1, all categories except for Women's Singles. Note that Open Singles will be single elimination, no pool play. Open Doubles qualifying starts Monday August 2. Qualifying will occur outside at Laney College on a grass athletic field.

Net Championship Bracket Information: Singles and Doubles Championship Brackets will be played indoors in the Oakland Convention Center. We will have 6 Sport Courts across the 33,000 sq. ft. West Exhibit Hall. We will have three playing sessions per day. Morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Note that the evening sessions will host the top matches of the day. Exact hour are to be announced.

Freestyle Information: Freestyle will start Monday August 2 in the East Hall of the Convention Center. The entire freestyle event is in the 15,000 sq. ft. East Hall. The floor will be carpeted a consistent surface and identical conditions for all three rounds and for all warm-up and practice areas. Competition will conclude Friday evening, August 6th. The detailed schedule is below.

Players will be able to get outside and play freestyle and net at Ogawa Plaza. Located 2 blocks form the Marriott, in front of Oakland City Hall, there is an amphitheater and grass area for our members to use all week long. Get out and soak in the sun.

BART to San Francisco. The BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit subway system) station is located right outside the front doors of the Marriott hotel. BART will take you to downtown San Francisco in 14 minutes. From there, you can use trolleys or other forms of transportation to get around the city, e.g., to Fisherman's Wharf, The Ferry Building and other SF sites. Note that parking is very cheap at the BART stations, however, overnight parking is not allowed. If you need to park overnight, consider finding an alternative location to park such as an airport long-term parking lot where you can easily take BART to the event and/or to tourist areas.

Transportation:

Airports: The closest airport is Oakland International (OAK), which is a short
train ride from the hotel. However, many flights will probably be into SFO
(San Francisco International airport), and others may be into SJC (San Jose
Int'l).

Oakland International is a hub for Southwest Airlines, good for North American
travel (Direct access to BART by AirBart).

SFO is usually better for international flights.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit);  Direct access to Marriott's front door (12th
St./City Center Station, go to 11th St. exit.)

The absolute fastest way to get good directions is to click on "Directions: To
Here" on the map above. Then type SFO, SJC, or OAK depending on the
airport you are flying into (or if you are coming from somewhere else, put
that information instead). Once you are on Google Maps' directions screen,
change to "public transit" to see the BART directions for each airport.

For your convenience, we also have a brief description of each option below 
(but
the link in the map is really the best way to ensure accurate directions).

From Oakland International Airport: You simply follow signs to AirBART which 
is
a $3 cash bus ride to the BART station at Coliseum/Oakland Airport. From 
there,
buy a ticket on BART northbound to the 12th St./Oakland City Center station
($1.75 each way, or round-trip for $3.50). The total ride on the train is 
about
11 minutes. On reaching the 12 St./Oakland City Center station, look for the
signs for the  11th Street exit, which is directly in front of the Marriott. 
Welcome.

From San Francisco International Airport: The best option is BART (the Bay 
Area
Rapid Transit system train). We do not recommend taxi because it is quite far 
and
you must go through San Francisco first, and then across the Bay Bridge, which 
can
be very bad traffic taking over an hour. Thankfully, the BART goes through a
separate underground tunnel to the east bay.  The BART station is directly in 
the
SFO International Terminal just next to the international departures (look for
signs either via the Sky Train that goes between terminals or if you are in 
the
International Terminal, simply go upstairs to the departure area and look for
signs.
Look on the map for the 12th St/Oakland City Center Station, and plan your 
trip
accordingly. The trip should cost $8.40 from SFO to 12th St./Oakland City 
Center.
Depending on which route you take, you probably need to change trains at
West Oakland and switch to the Richmond Line to get to 12th St./Oakland City
Center. The ride should be about 43 minutes total.  When you exit the train,
follow the signs to the 11th St. exit -- that's the exit in front of the 
hotel.

From San Jose International Airport: The best way is to take the BART shuttle 
from
the airport to the Fremont BART station (ask for directions if you don't see 
it).
You then buy a ticket northbound to the 12st St./Oakland City Center station
($4.00 each way, or you can buy both directions at once for $8.00). The BART
ride is 37 minutes, not counting the shuttle from San Jose airport.  Once you
arrive in the station, exist via the 11th Street exit and you will be directly
in front of the Marriott. Welcome.
