After several months of teasers… You’re sure to have recognized them… You can now find more than 70 Bonzini foosball tables across the SNCF’s different networks, for a new way to experience the game: FOOSBALL AT THE STATION!
The very first table was installed in the Valence TGV station in 2014, followed by a second at the Lyon St-Exupéry station to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2015.
Over the past 4 months, the concept has been extended to 40 TGV stations, 10 Eurostar stations, 8 transilien stations and 16 Intercités stations.
How to play? With whom?
The station foosball program offers travellers a fun break and a chance to meet new friends and spark conversations while waiting for their train.
The football tables are open to all, free of charge, for one, two, or more games!
To foster conversations and encounters between players, the program includes the “Baby-Foot connecté” smartphone app, which encourages players to keep the foosball experience going with other travellers.
They can create an avatar and use it to record their scores, challenge other players at the station to a game (or more than one!), compare themselves to other teams, and become station foosball champions.
We designed a special foosball table to meet the station foosball program’s unique needs, combining the authentic Bonzini look with a personalized finish for each station. The black lacquered tables feature a polycarbonate frame and a central ball feed, with teams wearing the colours of the SNCF and the French national football team. And all free of charge!
