Football Flipout Freeroll
Celebrate this summer’s football during the PokerStars Marbella Festival and win a seat to the ESPT Barcelona Main Event, or UKIPT Isle of Man with the Football Flipout Freeroll!
Simply play any PokerStars Marbella Festival Main Events or Side Events* and you’ll automatically be in with a chance of qualifying for the Football Flipout Freeroll.

What is a Flipout Tournament?
Each multi-table Flipout tournament starts with a unique twist. All players taking part will be all-in in the very first hand, with the winner being the last player standing on each table. All those who survive will then play out the rest of the tournament in a conventional MTT style.

How do I win a seat to the Football Flipout Freeroll?
Anyone that enters any PokerStars Marbella Festival Main events or Side Events is randomly allocated a five minute time segment of a football game taking place nearest to, or during, that poker event. If players from either team during the related football match “flips out” and is involved in any of following actions during your time segment, you will win a seat to the Freeroll.
That’s not all though, we are also awarding seats to the best football themed fancy dress during each tournament!

Qualifying Flipout actions 

  • Scoring a goal
  • Awarded a yellow card
  • Awarded a red Card
  • Missing  a penalty

Here’s how the football and PokerStars Marbella Festival schedules match up.
