Table football, also known as table soccer, and known as foosball in North America, is a table-top game that is loosely based on football. The aim of the game is to move the ball into the opponent's goal by manipulating rods which have figures attached. Although rules often vary by country and region when the game is played casually, at the competitive level table soccer is played according to a unified code.
Table football is often played for fun in pubs, bars, workplaces, schools, offices and clubs with few rules. Table football is also played in official competitions organized by a number of national organizations, with highly evolved rules and regulations.
