Press release from Never Beef Productions:
(New York, NY) – Never Beef Productions announced today that the New York City Pinball Championships returns in 2022 after a three-year hiatus, bigger, better, and boomier than ever before. Leaving behind stodgy Manhattan for the hip confines of Industry City, Brooklyn, the tournament, to be held August 19-21 at the Five Two A event space, will welcome hundreds of tournament players of all skill levels. The space, which can accommodate up to 500 silverball combatants, features over 10,000 square feet and stunning unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan, hosted by the historic Industry City campus featuring dozens of local food and shopping options catering to all tastes.
NYCPC tournaments will include International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA)-sanctioned, IFPA-certified Main, Classics, and the Dahlia Rowan Memorial Women’s NYC Championship, as well as a B-Division contest for players ranked outside of the top 500 by the IFPA. Sizeable payouts will be awarded to winners in all divisions.
Registration and special limited time “early flipper” discount ticket sales for NYCPC open on Saturday, May 28, at 12 pm EDT, at Eventbrite. Visit the revamped NYCPC web site at www.nycpinballchamps.com for links, registration, and information about the venue, the neighborhood, and nearby lodging options.
“It’s been a long three years, but the wait hasn’t been in vain; we’ve spent the time working to make NYCPC bigger, better, and more accessible to everyone,” said NBP Co-founder Levi Nayman. “The new venue and Industry City campus redefines what a pinball tournament experience should be; as players compete in world-class tournaments, they’ll be immersed in New York City – it’s culture, its taste, its landmarks, and its excitement! We can’t wait to welcome everyone back from the beefiest of hibernations. Like Lady Liberty herself, we lift the torch of competition to the skies, a fiery beacon welcoming the huddled masses yearning to flip free, and declare once and for all: Pinball is back!”
