It is a well know fact that most sports industries like footbag have to be funded from within their own sports community. Funding from outside the footbag community is extremely hard. This is why we are asking you, the footbag community, to step up and contribute. There are a lot of special people playing footbag and your help will go a long way to providing help where needed. Support Worlds from a far. If all of you contributed, We could really provide the players.
We have several options for you to provide much needed support to our event this year. This event and the players need support in order to provide for the IFPA Membership’s worlds presentation of Footbag Sports and our commitment to the world’s players.
