QubicaAMF will usher in the next 50 years of the Bowling World Cup at Sam’s Town
After a 16-year absence, the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup returns to the United States in style, surrounded by the flash, glitter and appeal of one of America's favorite vacation destinations.
Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas will host QubicaAMF’s classic event for the second time in the tournament’s 50-year history this November.
“A warm Las Vegas welcome is awaiting all our bowlers and guests this November,” said John Sou, Sam’s Town Vice President and General Manager. “We are excited to welcome back this great event.”
The 56-lane center will showcase QubicaAMF’s BES X Scoring and Management System, the world’s only Bowling Entertainment System. BES X is designed to provide exciting competitive play at any level and uniquely allows bowlers to review their game statistics on-lane, live, and on-demand directly from the SuperTouch LCD bowler console. During the tournament, through BES X, fans will also be able to keep up with their favorite bowlers with live, online scoring. Scores can be viewed in real time, and fans also can see what lanes bowlers are bowling on as well as their standing at any given moment. The system's unqiue Facebook feature also enables fans to stay connected with their favorite players.
Sam's Town will also serve as the official tournament headquarters.
QubicaAMF President, Juan Cabezas, said, “It gives me great pleasure to usher in the next 50 years of the Bowling World Cup at Sam’s Town. My colleagues have told me about the great tournament that was held here in 1999, and I know that the team at Sam’s Town will do a terrific job for us this year. I am looking forward to Las Vegas in November!”
"We think the selection of Las Vegas as Host City will generate great excitement and interest in this year's Bowling World Cup," said tournament organizer Anne-Marie Board. "Not only is Las Vegas one of the premier vacation cities in the world, but it's also a great bowling town, hosting a variety of bowling championships each year. It's quite possible that we'll top the record of 95 countries that participated in the 2004 Bowling World Cup in Singapore."
The tournament will take place in Sam’s Town from November 13 – 20, 2015.
Last year's tournament in Wroclaw, Poland, attracted bowlers from 85 nations. The champions were Clara Juliana Guerrero of Colombia and Chris Barnes of the USA.
