Foosball Table Cheering

FOX Sports Presents U.S. WNT with Customized Foosball Table

During U.S. WNT media day today at New York City’s Twitter headquarters, FOX Sports unveiled a first-of-its-kind foosball table customized to the exact specifications of each player on the team’s roster. FOX Sports analysts Aly Wagner and Alexi Lalas presented each member of the team with their own personalized figurine. Figurines were scanned, 3D printed and hand painted for each individual.

Foosball Table Cheering

Highlights of the table include:

Players:

The table features a RED team and WHITE team and includes the entire U.S. WNT roster.

The fully custom 3D printed figurines are based on custom foosball player molds and hand-painted in full color to incorporate:

  • Hair color
  • Player accessories
  • Full Nike kit including names and numbers

Foosball Table 2

Artists:

Blue Table Painting is a pioneer of the emerging miniatures painting industry. Veronica Zak (former animator at NASA) was the lead artist on the FOX Sports figurine project, overseeing the team of four to complete more than 350 figurines within three weeks, working around the clock to match likenesses precisely.

Foosball Table 1

Tables: 

Warrior Table Soccer was established in 2003 with the goal of producing a quality foosball table that would be affordable for most families. A team of seven foosball connoisseurs worked to create an incredible foosball table for the U.S. WNT featuring custom scanned and hand painted figures for every player on the team.

Foosball Table Alexi and Aly

3D Printing:

It took one machine 24 hours a day to produce 100 players per week, during a four-week production window to create the foosball player molds.

The players were produced by 3D Printing Ally on a Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) machine out of nylon material. SLS involves the use of a high-power laser to fuse small particles of nylon powder into a mass that has a desired three-dimensional shape. The laser selectively fuses powdered material by scanning cross-sections generated from a 3-D digital description of the part on the surface of a powder bed. This material was used to ensure the players withstood the wear and tear of foosball gaming.

Lead 3D designer Meg Hamann worked to bring the scans to life creating a custom foosball player body that would work well from a playing perspective.

Foosball Table Alex and Allie

FOX Sports’ agency of record, Wieden + Kennedy, created the original concept.. Gilt Edge Soccer Marketing, FOX Sports’ soccer agency, helped to execute and bring the tables to life.

FOX NASCAR Ready for Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday and “Drivers Only” Broadcast on Saturday

NASCAR’s Longest Race, the COCA-COLA 600, Live on FOX Sunday; Third-Annual “Drivers Only (+Chad)” NASCAR XFINITY SERIES Race Live on FS1 Saturday

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NASCAR stages its longest race of the season, the COCA-COLA 600, at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend, live Sunday, May 26, on FOX (6:00 PM ET).

In addition, FOX Sports takes its “Drivers Only” race broadcast to Charlotte on Saturday (1:00 PM ET on FS1), officially dubbing its third-annual star-studded lineup “Drivers Only + Chad,” reflecting the inclusion of seven-time championship crew chief Chad Knaus to this year’s lineup.

“DRIVERS ONLY + CHAD”:
On the heels of highly popular “Drivers Only” broadcasts at Pocono (2017) and Talladega (2018), FOX NASCAR puts its eight-driver team to the test at Charlotte on Saturday for the third-consecutive year – this time with a twist. Chad Knaus joins the FOX Sports lineup on Saturday for the “Drivers Only + Chad” NASCAR XFINITY SERIES race telecast, live on FS1 at 1:00 PM ET, joining all eight returning drivers from last season. For the third time, Kevin Harvick has the call alongside analysts Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano. Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones and Bubba Wallace cover pit road, while Brad Keselowski returns to host from FOX Sports’ virtual studio in Charlotte alongside analysts Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Knaus.

FOX SPORTS REMEMBERS:
Continuing a tradition begun in 2009, FOX NASCAR once again honors American service members who have fallen in the past year with “FOX Sports Remembers” during Sunday’s COCA-COLA 600 race broadcast. The tribute features a running scroll listing the name of every U.S. service member who lost his or her life at home or abroad since last year’s Memorial Day Weekend race. The scroll runs throughout NASCAR RACEDAY, beginning at 5:30 PM ET on FOX, and is shown in its entirety at least once during the race broadcast.

FOX NASCAR BROADCASTERS’ 600 WINS:
The FOX NASCAR analyst pool owns a collective 14 COCA-COLA 600 wins. Three-time champ and NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip holds the record with five (1987, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1989). Four-time champ and Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon is tied for third-most with three wins (1994, 1997 and 1998). Jeff Hammond led Waltrip to three of his 600 victories (1985, 1988 and 1989), while Larry McReynolds led Davey Allison to Victory Lane in the 1991 edition. Bobby Labonte drove to the coveted win in 1995, while Andy Petree guided Dale Earnhardt to the checkered flag in 1993.

NASCAR RACEDAY PRERACE:
With COCA-COLA 600 prerace coverage beginning Sunday at 4:30 PM ET on FS1 and continuing at 5:30 PM ET on FOX, NASCAR RACEDAY offers:
• A poignant interview with Brad Keselowski and family members of fallen soldier Navy Petty Officer Second Class (Special Operations 2) Joseph Clark Schwedler, a member of Seal Team Four who fell to enemy fire in Iraq on April 6, 2007, while participating in an assault on a home occupied by terrorists. Petty Officer Schwedler studied at Michigan State University prior to enlisting, and his name was presented to Keselowski through a supporter of the driver’s Checkered Flag Foundation.
• Adam Alexander, Darrell Waltrip and Jeff Gordon live from Charlotte Motor Speedway

FOX NASCAR QUOTES

On Saturday’s “Drivers Only + Chad” NASCAR XFINITY SERIES race telecast:

NASCAR XFINITY SERIES PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER ADAM ALEXANDER SAYS THE “DRIVERS ONLY” DRIVER ANALYSTS HAVE QUICKLY GROWN INTO BROADCASTERS:
“All those guys have become naturals in their broadcasting roles and keenly aware of what is required, what works and what doesn’t. There’s power in numbers, so they also provide a bit of security and comfort to each other. The first year, I made sure I was in the booth really early and stayed glued to their sides in the booth for the entire race, but this year, I could take the afternoon off and no one would notice.”

ALEXANDER IS IMPRESSED WITH THE DRIVERS’ QUICK TRANSITION FROM RACE CAR TO BROADCAST AFTER CUP SERIES PRACTICE:
“Those guys don’t get enough credit for the transition they make for the ‘Drivers Only’ broadcast, because 90-percent of the time, they are jumping out of their Cup car after final practice and running like their hair is on fire to the booth, pit road or the host desk for the start of the Xfinity race. Other than during the Cup race, that’s as intense a part of their weekend as they will experience. They’re still sweating when they step into the booth. To be able to turn off that intensity behind the wheel and turn on a smiling face, add charm and personality and get focused on calling a race, is simply amazing to me.”

ALEXANDER SAYS HIS ROLE IN “DRIVERS ONLY” BROADCAST HAS GOTTEN EASIER EACH YEAR:
“We’ve kept the same group of guys in the booth the entire time, and they have gotten better and better – almost to the point you’d think they do this every week. Prior to the first ‘Drivers Only’ broadcast at Pocono, I went to Kevin Harvick’s house and spent a lot of time explaining my prep process and relaying what is and isn’t important for his database. Now, he has called so many races that he doesn’t need that. Joey Logano also has spent so much time in the FOX Sports booth and on NASCAR RACE HUB that he doesn’t need much coaching. And Clint Bowyer, well, I’ve never seen someone call a race, leave the booth, forget everything we taught him, return the next time, and in five or 10 laps, be right where he needs to be. He’s a natural.”

On the Coca-Cola 600:

FOX NASCAR DRIVER ANALYST JOEY LOGANO SAYS KYLE LARSON PROBABLY FEELS SOME RELIEF AFTER WINNING THE ALL-STAR RACE:
“Everybody goes through this at some point in your career when you have those down moments, and that’s where you learn the most about yourself. If you can dig out of that, you’re stronger. If you can dig out. Larson did a great job of positioning himself to win $1 million the other night and get that win. That’s the great part. The bad part is he still gets to the Coca-Cola 600 this week with the same number of points and without that win and not being locked into the Playoffs. This is a good momentum piece that proves he can do it because he’s had some struggles this year, he’s had a teammate running really good, which is good and bad. That momentum he built by winning the All-Star Race is huge. It will be interesting to see if that continues for the next few races when the races really count. Those points sometimes are worth way more than $1 million.”

FOX NASCAR ANALYST DARRELL WALTRIP SAYS THE COMPLEXION OF THE COCA-COLA 600 HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS:
“When I was racing, if you made it to 600 miles without something breaking on your car, you knew you were living right. There was always a huge chance something would blow up, fall off or wear out long before the driver did. The equipment wasn’t bulletproof like it tends to be today. You couldn’t ask for 100-percent out of the car because you simply wouldn’t get it. To avoid being in the garage early, you had to pace yourself, have a game plan and go about it slow and steady until later in the race.”

Pressel-1040x585

LPGA Major Winner Morgan Pressel Joins FOX Sports’ Coverage of 2nd U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship

Pressel Joins Analyst Brad Faxon and Play-by-Play Announcer Shane Bacon in the Booth

Los Angeles – FOX Sports’ 2019 USGA coverage tees off with the third round of the 2nd U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship on Saturday, May 18 at 3:00 PM. ET on FS1. Coverage continues on Sunday, May 19 with final round action airing from 3:00 to 5:00 PM ET on FS1 from Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C.

FOX Sports mainstays analyst Brad Faxon and Shane Bacon anchor the booth, in addition to rules analyst David Fay and on-course reporters Nicole Castrale and Brett Quigley. The crew is joined by LPGA major winner Morgan Pressel, who provides insight and analysis alongside Faxon and Bacon throughout the weekend. Pressel is no stranger to the broadcast booth, having previously served as an analyst in FOX Sports’ digital coverage of the 115th U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay. She is also familiar with Pine Needles, having played the course in the 2001 U.S. Women’s Open at just twelve years old, the youngest qualifier ever at the time.

Pressel is the third youngest player to ever win an LPGA major tournament with her victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2007. An active member of the LPGA Tour, she also won the 2008 Kapalua LPGA Classic and has 60 career top-10 finishes. As an amateur, she tied for second at the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open, and later that same year won the U.S. Women’s Amateur. In just a few weeks she will compete in the 74th U.S. Women’s Open Championship at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C.
