What is the Stern Army?
Members of the Stern Army are the official brand ambassadors that make up the Stern Pinball street team. Stern Army Members help make pinball locations flourish by creating and hosting monthly pinball events at a designated location and using these opportunities to help drive business to the location all while engaging and enriching the local pinball community. Stern Pinball helps by offering prize support to giveaway at your events and by also sharing the results through our social media channels to help promote your location.
Who Can Join?
STERN ARMY LOCATIONS MUST BE A PUBLIC LOCATION
Pinball Operators own equipment and place games in everyone’s favorite establishment, whether that be Breweries, Family Entertainment Centers, Bars, Restaurants, Arcades, etc. Since the success of the pinball machines in each location is very important, it’s quite common that the Pinball Operator is the Stern Army representative for their own locations. This is so they can engage with the pinball community during League nights, ensure the games are in great condition, and ultimately help enhance the players’ experience so they keep returning to play.
Stern Army Location Employees
Within each public location you see pinball, you’ll find an owner, manager, bartender, or technician that can also be the Stern Army ambassador for their own Stern Army Location. Similar to a Pinball Operator, the success of the machines is very important to the location, so owners and managers will want to designate one of their own to run the monthly/weekly tournaments.
Players and Enthusiasts
The pinball players who go to these locations to play regularly, can also be designated to be the official Stern Army representative. Because the players are typically already engaged with other players in the area, it can make sense to have them run the leagues so they can invite other pinball players and enthusiasts to join the leagues.
HOW TO SET UP A TOURNAMENT
Members of the Stern Army are the official brand ambassadors that make up the Stern Pinball street team. Stern Army members work in partnership with the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) to help create more tournaments and leagues at public locations while earning Stern perks.
