Since hosting the first ever world championships in 1974, Denver has been known as the Mecca for table soccer players all across the world and has the highest concentration of world champions of anywhere in the world. Todd Loffredo learned to play table soccer from Denver game room owner and foosball world champion Mike Bowers in the early 70s, and has gone on to become the most prolific, and oldest, player who currently plays on the professional tour. Cindy Head, another Hall of Fame foosball player, is considered the greatest female player of all time, having racked up more world championships than any player, male or female. Lastly, Robert Mares is a multi-world champion foosball player based out of Aurora who is known as the great ambassador of the sport. Robert is the captain of Team USA foosball.

Foosballers is an award winning documentary that takes a deep dive into the underground world of professional table soccer, following six of the top players as they prepare for the Tornado World Championships. Through an ensemble cast of quirky chracters and obsessive fans, the film explores the sport's rich and relatively unknown history - covering its meteoric rise in the 70s during the Million Dollar Pro Tour, its devastating collapse in the 80s, and its current resurrection today.
