Cost of League Events
The cost of league night events will be $3 in 2023. What does the entrance fee go to?
- $1 goes towards IFPA for each sanctioned event
- $2 goes towards Manitoba Pinball League fund
Currently the only sanctioned event for league is the open league. For non sanctioned events the $3 will be going to the Manitoba Pinball League.
In the past the league has bought trophy plaques for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the finals of each league. We have also boosted the prizes of some events with the money coming in. In the future money will be going towards pizza during events. There is also a plan to have some random door prize draws, so you have a chance to win something by showing up.
