2018 sees the launch of a brand new competition for table footballers based in Sydney (or who will be in Sydney very regularly through the year). In an Australian first, the Sydney Cup will run right across the year as a stand alone, knockout tournament, for all players of all clubs as well as those without club affiliation.
The tournament will be conducted as a ‘double-elimination’ tournament, meaning that players are not knocked out until they lose for a second time. All rounds and games will be completely unseeded. Each round will be allotted a period of time to be completed and it will be up to players to contact their opponent and organise a suitable time to play before each round deadline. For full tournament rules, before entering, please read through the entire
tournament guidelines document pdf file here.
Entry is completely free, just fill in the form below to become part of the action. Entries close at midnight on Friday, Feb 9 and the first round of games will take place throughout February.
Here is the list of players/full teams who have already registered for the 2018 Asian Cup of Table Football. To join the ever-growing list, please click on this link: http://subbuteoaustralia.com/?p=3791

|Australia vs Singapore|
For the first time in history, Perth, Australia will play host to an event on the world tour of Sports Table Football (Subbuteo).
Sports Table Football, or “Subbuteo” as it is widely known, is a game based on association football. For many years it was marketed as “the replica of Association Football” or “Table Soccer”.
The 2017 Perth Winter Classic comprises of two individual events which both go towards the world rankings. The Saturday is an ‘International Open’ classification and the Sunday is a ‘Satellite’ event.
A strong and competitive field will battle it out on the pitch headlined by Singaporean players Irwan Iskander and Vikas Chandiramani (world ranking 177) who make the trip to Perth with silverware in their sights.
Local favourites include Sydney TFC’s Fabrizio Coco (56), Melbourne TFC’s Benji Batten (127) and Perth’s Ross McNulty and Alan Kimber who have been training hard to take victory on home soil.
The event will be hosted at the Fremantle Town Hall, Corner William, Adelaide and High Streets, Fremantle on the 29th and 30th of July.
Entry for spectators is free and we encourage people of all ages to come down and watch, with spare tables on hand for beginners to try out the game. For anyone interested in playing Subbuteo table football, this would be the perfect opportunity to come down and see what all the excitement is about.

The Australian Table Football Association is pleased to be able to announce the full details for the upcoming Australian Grand Prix.
The tournament will take place over the weekend of February 3-5. Our venue this year will be the premises of the Associazione Napoletana, found at 1A Marion St, Leichhardt, Sydney.
In a packed weekend of Subbuteo, the majority of individual tournaments will take place on Saturday, February 4, including the Individual Opens tournament and Individual Junior Tournaments in U19, U15 and U12 categories (subject to numbers). The individual tournaments will consist of a group phase with the top 2 place-getters in each group progressing to the knock-out stages. For players in the Opens Individual tournament who are eliminated early, a separate WASPA tournament will then take place.
Then, following on Sunday, February 5 will be the club teams tournament and, for the first time in Australian Subbuteo history, a FISTF Ladies Tournament. Another WASPA tournament will also be held for any players not participating in the Teams or Ladies tournament.
The Australian Grand Prix is open to all players, regardless of age, gender, experience or ability. New players are very welcome.

INTERNATIONAL OPEN TO KICKSTART THE SEASON IN AUSTRALIA
Melbourne will host the first major F.I.S.T.F. event of the Subbuteo 2015/2016 season in Australia with a total of 20 people entering held in the suburb of Brighton this weekend.
The majority are Melburnians, while Subbuteo Parramatta will fly down with a strong team presence of four players. Two from Brisbane Subbuteo Club and one representative of the Northern Falcons TFC finalizes the Australia representatives. Two other participants will add value and intensity to the whole purpose of the International Open as Englishman, Chris Thomas and Vincent Coco of Italy will fly down under.
What to Expect?
Chris Thomas may be tipped as the favorite to win the tournament with a FISTF world ranking #28, and points accumulated from the professionalised tournaments in Europe shows of significant experience earned throughout his playing days. However, his brother Peter, now residing in Australia and member of the Melbourne Table Football Club, will prove to be the greatest hurdle to achieve glory in Brighton.
Peter Thomas is the current Asian Champion in which this was achieved in January 2015 in Melbourne and looks set to provide a thrilling sibling derby match if both players get out of the group stage and progress through the knockouts.
Raffaele Lombardi of Subbuteo Parramatta will return to the subbuteo scene after competing in the 2015 World Cup. Although he experienced losses from two great players in his group stage, Raffaele made Australia proud as he managed to earn a draw (2-2) against Swiss opposition John Imbrogiano. His exposure at the World Cup and observations of the play-styles from Spanish, Italian and Austrian players, who dominated the event, will surely influence on his game and prove to be quite a challenge against his opponents in Melbourne.
Evidently, subbuteo is growing in Australia. Melbourne’s upcoming October International Open will hold more players than its previous last year, with new faces and return of players state-wide who are eager to improve their progress from their last flick-out. This will of course produce an appetite for those players to consider travelling to Sydney for the 2016 Grand Prix, held in January.

The September Cup is an annual Subbuteo tournament that has been held since 2003. This year, the September Cup also doubles up as the second tournament in the Sydney Premier League (click here for details) series of tournaments.
While all the current laws of Subbuteo will be used in the September Cup, there is one major restriction – that being that only original Subbuteo brand figures are allowed to be used in the tournament. So bring out your old heavyweights, your old flats, your old zombies, your old Hasbros, even your brand new bendy-legs – or borrow some of ours if you don’t have any. We’ll be preparing a selection of Subbuteo’s finest pitches – nylon pitches, cloth pitches – for you to test your original Subbuteo skills. Competitors will need to be adaptable to a wide range of conditions!
All players are welcome, no matter your age, gender, whether you’ve never played Subbuteo before or you’ve been playing for 50 years! The tournament will run through the afternoon of Saturday, September 12 at the Subbuteo Parramatta clubhouse in Toongabbie, from 1pm to 7pm and we’ll finish with a traditional September Cup feast of pizza.
