Perth International Open, 2017

venueOver the weekend of the 27th of July the Historic Port City of Fremantle welcomed 12 players to compete in Western Australia’s debut major Subbuteo event, the Perth FISTF International Open Winter Classic 2017. From East we welcomed current ATFA president Benji Batten (Melbourne TSC), Italian teamates Fabrizio Coco & Tony Credentino (Sydney TSC) and the big German Hermann Kruse (Nothern Falcons TSC). Singapore brought over 2 players in Irwan Iskander & Vikas Chadiramadi (Jurong Central TSC) along with Subbuteo Perth hosts Ross Mcnulty, Hugh Best, John Harty, Alan Kimber, Chris Thorn and Ron Byrne.

We set up early on the Friday afternoon and after a nice meal and catch up at a local pub after practice we headed to do the draw for the main Singles event for the following Saturday morning. We did a 3 player ,4 group format with each playing one game against the other with the top 2 progressing into the Quarter Finals and the remaining bottom players entering a WASPA barrage tournament to run alongside the knock out phases.

In the first game of Group 1 Benji Batten beat Hermann Kruse 3-1 to set the early pace in the group after a commanding display from the young Victorian, suddenly all memories of his 9hr flight delay where well and truly remedied. In Group 2 Ron Byrne faced up to Fabrizio Coco who along with Benji and Vikas was an outright favorite at the start and after a gallant effort the Italian proved to much defeating the Evertonian 9-0. In Group 3 Vikas opened up his account with a resounding 7-0 win against Ross Mcnulty to send out a real message of intent. Over in Group 4 Hugh Best and Chris Thorn played out a tense 0-0 draw to boost hopes for either player of a quarter final berth against group favorite Irwan. Into the second round of games and in Group 1 John Harty faced the daunting prospect of playing Benji Batten and he really did himself proud going down just 2-0 against such a quality player over the 30mins. In Group 2 Alan Kimber faced up against Fabrizio Coco and in another well matched game the mercurial Italian popped in 3 goals to firmly set up a quarter final showdown along with Benji in Group 1. In Group 3 Vikas again was banging the goals in as he beat Tony Credentino 5-0 to also join the others into the Quarters and over in Group 4 Irwan Iskander had a 1-0 victory over current newly appointed Perth President Hugh Best in a very tight and close match meaning the fate of who was joining Irwan came down to GD. In the final Group game in Group 1 Hermann Kruse took on John Harty and prevailed 3-0 to secure 2nd place alongside Benji Batten and in Group 2 the all Perth tie of Alan Kimber and Ron Byrne resulted in a 3-0 triumph to send a jubilant Kimber charging towards the Quarter Finals. In Group 3 it was do or die between Tony Credentino and Ross Mcnulty and after a see-saw game it was the Napoli loving Credentino that came out on top with a 3-1 win that catapulted him into the Quarter finals. The final game over in Group 4 pitted Irwan Iskander V Chris Thorn and Irwan powered his way to the Quarter finals with a 3-0 win that meant a joyous Hugh Best would be joining him after edging his Perth team mate on GD.

Into the Quarter Finals and Game 1 set up a classic encounter between Benji Batten and Tony Credentino with the game deadlocked at 2-2 Benji avoided the dreaded penalty shootout after scoring a dramatic Golden Goal 2 mins into extra time, the Victorian was ecstatic and as i watched on as a bit of fist pumping began for the young Australian. In the 2nd Quarter Final Alan Kimber took on Jurrong Centrals Irwan Iskander but could not find the form he needed and ultimately went crashing out 3-0 in another game where chances were taken mercilessly by Irwan and Kimbers usual long distance danger was kept at a premium by the Singaporian. In the 3rd Quarter Final Hugh Best took on Fabrizio Coco and another gallant effort was put in by the eccentric Perth boy but Fabrizio had too much class and went on to pop 4 unanswered goals to make the Semi finals 4-0. The Final Quarter Final game pitted the slick Vimas Chandiramani against the disciplined German Hermann Kruse and after another closely fought game it was Vikas that emerged victorious with a 2-0 win to join the other 3 Semi finalists.

The Semi Finals games were played at the same time and on table one it didnt take long for Benji batten to open his account against Irwan Iskander, and by half time be had opened up a 5-0 lead which had us all thinking it could well be his tournament, he added 2 second half goals in a 7-0 hammering but Irwan was delighted to have got so far in his statement after the game. In another classic encounter Fabrizio Coco faced off against Vikas Chandiramani, it was pulsating game but Fabrizio fashioned an early chance 5mins in with a finely worked move of patience, precision and power to put himself 1-0 up, Vikas played on creating 3 good chances but found the Italian defence to be rock solid on this occasion and after missing one final chance in the dying moments it was the Sydney residents day to join Benji Batten in the final.

groupA Final of real quality began and it was very much tit for tat as both players exchanged a few half chances in an engaging game but Fabrizio took the lead with his usual calm demeanor and from then on defended brilliantly(as he had all tournament conceding 0 goals) as Batten tried desperately to break down his defence. Ultimately it was decided by the one goal and both players could go away with there heads held high as Subbuteo was the winner over the entire weekend as we laughed, cried, made great friends, ate lots of food and generally had a fantastic time together. thanks again to all the other 11 players involved in getting this event off the ground and turning it into reality, especially John Harty and his partner Bev bone who provided all the logistics as well as the world class venue we all flicked at. Thanks to Barbara Thorn who provided the grub for us all to demolish and once again well done Fabrizio Coco on taking out the inaugural Perth FISTF International Open, its an event we at Subbuteo Perth plan on keeping for as long as we can.

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 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.

South Melbourne FC to host 2018 Asian Cup of Table Football at Lakeside Futsal

One of Australia’s most famous football clubs, South Melbourne FC, has thrown its weight behind table football and the Asian Cup to be staged in 2018.

More than 50 players from Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and Hong Kong will take part in a festival of table football in January 2018 at South Melbourne Football Club’s brand new Lakeside Futsal Centre and 1959 Bar and Grill.

Opened in 2017, the state of the art facilities represent South Melbourne’s significant push to re-establish themselves as one of Australia’s football powerhouses with an A-League licence the ultimate goal.

Melbourne club representatives Luke Radziminski (MTFC), Benny Ng (WTF), Beth Eveleigh (MTFC), Kevin Grant (WTF), Benji Batten (MTFC).

“We’re excited to host this international event at our new facilities and we can’t wait to see the best Table Footballers from across Asia in action,” said George Kouroumalis, Operations, Media and Marketing Manager for South Melbourne FC.

“We’ve also teamed up with the Melbourne Table Football Club, who will also be on hand to use our facilities across the remainder of the year. At South Melbourne we are passionate about everything football related so Table Football is a natural fit for us,” said Kouroumalis.

The 2018 Asian Cup will be the fourth in the competition’s history, with Melbourne hosting the inaugural event in 2015.

In addition to an individual competition, the top clubs from each country will compete against one another, and the highly coveted national team event will determine the region’s top country.

Participants
• Benji Batten – President
• Luke Radziminski – Board member
• Peter Thomas – Secretary
• Eliot Kennedy – Treasurer
• Adrian Elmer – Communications Officer
• Kevin Grant
• Fabrizio Coco
• Benny Ng
• Steve Dettre
• Richard Wilson
• Adrian Connolly
• Beth Eveleigh

1 – Welcome and introductions
The meeting was opened at 2.30 pm and the President welcomed members to the meeting. Participation at the meeting was facilitated using video conference facilities.

2 – President’s report
The President reported there was continued growth of table football across the country, with more people playing and participating in events. There are currently 15 affiliated clubs across six states with the most active clubs being Perth SC, Brisbane, Western Flickers, Sydney TFC, Melbourne TFC, Parramatta and Northern Falcons. There are currently 54 Australian players in the FISTF rankings and 127 players in the WASPA world rankings.
A FISTF International Grant Prix was held in Sydney, an International Open in Melbourne, and Satellite event also in Melbourne. Australia had a team at the Asian Cup in Japan, and had players participate in the FISTF World Cup. WASPA events have been held every month of the year.
A significant amount of ATFA’s effort has been focused on formally establishing the association through its incorporation in New South Wales, and establishing memberships of the association. There are now 39 adult members, and nine junior members.
Finances have come into the association through membership fees ($10 per person) and in the future the association will be less reliant on donations.
Earlier this year the ATFA Board discussed its role and decided the focus would be on ATFA being primarily fulfilling its administrative functions and that clubs and players would concentrate on organising events. This allows membership fees to be set a low level and encourages members to sign up. It also allows individual clubs to develop their own model to meet their own needs. In future, any FISTF tournaments will be organised by individual clubs (awarded to those clubs through an application process), and they will take responsibility for the organisation and financial aspects related to those events. ATFA will not itself be organising events.

Item 3 – Financial Report
The Financial Report was provided by the Treasurer and has been provided to all members.
The anticipated revenue for ATFA is expected to cover its administrative costs which include incorporation fees, banking fees, FISTF registration fees, and website hosting fees. Additional revenue might be gained through increased membership of ATFA. At this stage, it is not anticipated that increased revenue is needed.
Steve Dettre noted that FISTF has committed a total of 200-to-400 euros for assistance towards the costs of hosting the Asian Cup in 2018. Should this materialise then it will be put towards costs such as the venue fee.

Item 4 – Outcome of board election
The returning officer (Steve Dettre) provided the outcome of election for positions on the ATFA board. The outcomes were as follows:
PresidentBenji BATTEN (Melbourne TFC)
o Elected unopposed

Vice PresidentRaffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)
o Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)                    20 votes
o Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC)     19 votes

General SecretaryPeter THOMAS (Melbourne TFC)
o Elected unopposed

TreasurerEliot KENNEDY (Northern Falcons TFC)
o Elected unopposed

Board Advisor (Communications Officer)Adrian ELMER (Subbuteo Parramatta)
o Elected unopposed

Board Advisor (General) – Two positionsGiuseppe TARDIOTA (Brisbane Subbuteo Club) & Christos GARAGOUNIS (Northern Phoenix TFC)
o Giuseppe TARDIOTA (Brisbane Subbuteo Club)    29 votes
o Christos GARAGOUNIS (Northern Phoenix TFC)    14 votes
o Beth EVELEIGH (Melbourne TFC)                              13 votes
o Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC)              11 votes
o Steve WRIGHT (Western Flickers TFC)                        6 votes
o Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)                               2 votes
Note: Two (2) votes were made in error to Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC), in contravention of the requirement as listed in the voting procedure: “You can only vote for Adrian Connolly or Raffaele Lombardi as a Board Advisor if you have NOT voted for them as Vice-President.” These two votes were discounted already, providing the above figure as listed. Similarly, one (1) vote was made for Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC) in contravention of the requirement. The above figure represents the discounted voting. These voting mistakes did not affect the outcome of the election for these two positions.

Item 5 -Priorities for 2017-18
The President outlined the general priorities for 2017-18 and provided members with the opportunity for feedback and discussion. The priorities were ensuring continued growth of the game through ongoing promotion, encouraging clubs to host WASPA events, and assisting clubs to hold successful FISTF events. There are forthcoming FISTF events coming up including an International Open in Perth (July), Sydney (September) and a Continental Championship in January. It is hoped that there will be a positive announcement in the coming weeks with regards to the venue for this event.
To encourage greater participation the development of mini circuits will be encouraged in each state/city to try and maximise attendance.
ATFA will investigate ordering some official shirts in the coming weeks. These shirts would be for events such as the World Cup and Asian Cup.
It is proposed that ATFA should develop a code of conduct that all players must agree to play in ATFA events. It is hope to have this in place by September.

Item 6 – Any other business / member feedback
Steve Dettre asked whether any Australian players were planning on participating in the World Cup. The President stated that he expected Robert Green to be playing. Fabrizio Coco stated that he expected Raffaele Lombardi and Daniele Lombardi to be interested.
It was noted that there will be items on the FISTF Congress agenda for voting. These items should be sent to ATFA in advance and will be discussed by the ATFA Board.

Meeting closed.
