2022 so poster 700px for web

After the worst possible 2 years for Table Football (ever tried to social distance while playing Subbuteo?!) we are incredibly excited to be able to announce that proper tournaments are back! With borders opening around Australia, the 2022 season is able to start with a bang at the 2022 Sydney Open.

Sponsorship of the tournament from our host venue, Willoughby Park Bowling Club, and their restaurant, Willows Bistro, means that entry fees have been able to be kept to a bare minimum – $5 per player for the entire weekend of table football (or free for juniors). The Draw will take place as part of a dinner at the venue on the evening of Friday, January 21, with Individual Events in Open, Women’s, U20 and U16 categories held on Saturday, January 22 and Club Teams (Open & Junior) events (with a separate WASPA tournament for those without a club team) on Sunday, January 23. All players are welcome regardless of age, gender or experience.

Dinners on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights are also available, with Sunday’s meal available for free for players competing on both Saturday and Sunday. As part of our sponsorship deal, players are also asked not to bring food and drinks but to make any food purchases during the days of competition from the venue.

Hosted by the Sydney, Canberra and NSW South Coast table football clubs, we are looking forward to having the wonderful table footballing community of Australia (and beyond) reunited. Join us in January!

2018 World Cup Doubles Tournament – Sydney

click for larger image

41 years ago, 50 members of Sydney’s Subbuteo crowd staged their own ‘World Cup’. This was the famous ‘Doubles’ format, with players adopting a national team: Geoff Sirmai and Johnny Rado as Hungary; Don and Gary Hosie as England; Martin and Eliot Kennedy as Australia, and so on! Matches produced plenty of drama, fun and spectacular goals.

In conjunction with the forthcoming FIFA World Cup, Northern Falcons TFC and Subbuteo Parramatta are combining to host another ‘World Cup’ (Doubles) on Sunday, July 1, 2018, with some additional rules about pairings.

Entry will be $7 per player.

Pairs will be drawn before the event, with a more experienced player being drawn with a newbie or beginner. Any team comprising a beginner will get THREE free-shots before the match, and will start with however many goals they score!!
If two players want to pre-nominate as a pair, they can, but then the entry fee is $14 each.
Teams composed of relatives (father – son – daughter – uncle – mother etc) will get ONE free-shot before the match (unless one is a newbie!!)
Pairings who wear the national strip of their nominated country will get a bonus point in their group table.
Any national team is valid.
If you want to select your team, that’s another $10 fee!
Otherwise all teams will be assigned with a random draw, comprised of the teams playing at the World Cup in Russia.
All money will go towards the organisation of the AGP19!!

This is a great chance to bring along a friend, as Doubles is a good introduction to the game. Advice on the run from their team mate will help less experienced players.

The tournament will be held at Good Games Bella Vista – Lower Podium H143, 24-32 Lexington Drive, Bella Vista, Sydney. Players should arrive at midday and the first round of games will begin at 12:30PM. Register below by midnight, Thursday, June 28. Pairings will be drawn on Friday, June 29.

Special rules for the doubles format can be found by clicking here.

Subbuteo Parramatta Autumn Junior WASPA Tournament

poster 600pxIn April of 2017, Subbuteo Parramatta and Good Games Bella Vista joined forces for the first time (the store hadn’t even officially opened at the time!) to host their first event together – a Junior WASPA tournament. Now, exactly one year on, both are proud to be repeating the event with the Autumn 2018 edition of Subbuteo Parramatta’s Junior WASPA Tournament.

The tournament will be held on Thursday, April 26 (during the upcoming school holidays), beginning at midday. It is open to all school aged players and will be held at Good Games Bella Vista – H143, 24-32 Lexington Drive, Bella Vista (on the downstairs level). Entry is $5 per player, which goes towards store credit – so you can use it to get refreshments or save up and buy games, paints, cards etc from the shop. All equipment is supplied and all players are welcome, regardless of experience or ability. Pending the number of players involved, we may split into more specific age or gender categories.

Please fill out the form below in order to register for the tournament.

(Please note : Good Games Bella Vista is a publicly accessible space and the store and Subbuteo Parramatta do not take responsibility for the children involved in the tournament. Parents/guardians are encouraged to supervise their children.)

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.

International Table Football set to touchdown in Perth


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.

Player List:

  1. Benji Batten (Melbourne Table Football Club, Australia)
  2. Fabrizio Coco (Sydney TFC, Australia)

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.
