Table football, also known as fussball, foosball, and many other names, is a table-top game and sport that is loosely based on association football. To begin the game, the ball is served through a hole at the side of the table, or simply placed by hand at the feet of a figure in the center of the table. The initial serving side is decided with by coin toss. Players attempt to use figures mounted on rotating bars to kick the ball into the opposing goal.
