A Brief History

The history of table soccer in Canada is very similar to many other countries. Pre-World War II, tables were made for people’s home using pieces of wood as the playing figures. After the war, tables were being imported to the major urban areas of eastern Canada where Garlando became the preferred table of choice. Beginning in the 70s, leagues and recreational foosball games in eastern Canada was played on Garlando tables. Over in western Canada, Tornado became the table of choice. Today, western Canadian players primarily use Tornado tables, while eastern players use a mix of Garlando, Tornado and Bonzini.*
