IFPA and Breakpoint Sign Licensing Agreement for Mobile Game

The International Footbag Players' Association (IFPA) recently granted Breakpoint, a rapidly growing developer and publisher of entertainment software for wireless devices, license to develop and publish a first-ever branded mobile game featuring footbag.

Based on the agreement, Breakpoint becomes the exclusive mobile partner of IFPA and receives its worldwide license for the period of 2 years. The license provides Breakpoint with rights to feature official footbag rules and moves, as well as the IFPA logo and name in the game. Due out in the summer of 2007, the footbag mobile game's release will coincide with the 2007 IFPA World Footbag Championships in Orlando, Florida, August 11-18.

"IFPA is very excited about the opportunity and exposure from Breakpoint's footbag mobile game," said Julie Symons, Exective Director of IFPA.

Pawel Feldman, Publishing and Licensing Manager at Breakpoint, said, "Both Breakpoint and IFPA count on the game also making footbag itself more popular".
