Tecmo Super Bowl: 1st Annual North Alabama Tecmo Championship

The nation's largest Tecmo Super Bowl tournament will be played March 2, 2013 in Madison, Wis. Tecmo IX—Marino Royale boasts a field of 224 competitors. Interest in the already-popular tournament increased significantly after NFL Films featured the event in a 2012 documentary.

Madison is the king of Tecmo tournaments—for now. Other tournaments, such as the Midwest Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament, the Lincoln, NE Tecmo Tournament and the Southwest Louisiana Tecmo Super Bowl are growing in popularity every year.

The North Alabama Tecmo Bowl Association held the first annual North Alabama Tecmo Championship Saturday night at the Chelsey Oaks Golf Course in Fairview, Ala. Twenty competitors from three states comprised the tournament field.
