2020 sees the FISTF World Cup of Table Football take place in Italy in September. Players who are thinking of traveling to Italy for the event are invited to compete in a qualification tournament next month. Please use the entry form below if you would like to compete in the tournament to qualify to represent ATFA at the World Cup. We will also be holding a WASPA tournament on the same day at the same venue – it would be great to have as many players coming along to create atmosphere! So please also enter on the form below if you’d like to play in that WASPA tournament (this will help the Northern Falcons TFC know how many pitches to set up for the day).

The days have started to get longer, footballers are becoming either nervous about their upcoming semi-finals or disappointed to have missed out this season. The grass is starting to grow again after hibernation and temperatures are starting to warm up. That can only mean one thing – the September Cup is just around the corner, signalling the start of the new Subbuteo season!
The September Cup was first played in 2003 and is now Australia’s longest running annual Subbuteo Tournament. This year, it returns to its spiritual home date of September 3, the 13th anniversary of the first edition. The September Cup is also unique in the Australian Table Football landscape as it is the only tournament where only Subbuteo brand equipment is used – balls, pitches, figures and ‘keepers. See the golden oldies’ eyes mist over as their figures curl gracefully. Hear the younger players curse as they struggle to stop anything with ‘keepers half the size they’re used to wielding. Feel the warmth and idiosyncrasies of traditional cloth and nylon Subbuteo pitches.
The tournament will be held at the Subbuteo Parramatta Clubhouse, starting at 12:30. Entry is $5 to cover the cost of drinks and nibblies. All players are welcome, regardless of age, gender or Subbuteo experience. New players are always welcome and all equipment is provided if you don’t have any of your own. The tournament will also double as the first round of the newly rebranded Sydney Subbuteo Circuit – a series of 8 tournaments over the season to help determine Sydney’s champion players.
Competition night. We will start with new players able to test out the different range of figures available. A WASPA event will then follow to prepare for the FISTF Satellite in Berry. Wear something green to celebrates St Patrick’s Day!

Subbuteo Parramatta is pleased to announce that we will be running a tournament on Saturday, November 15, 2014.

All players are welcome to compete, regardless of age, gender, ability, club or national affiliations. New players are always more than welcome. All players are guaranteed 3 matches, most likely more. If you don’t have equipment, just let us know and we’ll make sure there’s some spares on hand for you. Continue reading
Last year, Alex Jennings was able to fluke his way through two penalty shootouts to take glory in the annual September Cup Subbuteo Tournament from under the noses of former champions Phillip Parker and Adrian Elmer. Costa Kamarados and his Greeks put in a great run to the semi-finals while new boys and girls, Jono Wilkes, Brontë Scott, Dan Wilkes, Imojjen Elmer and Paul Gorjan learned a lesson or two along the way.
The FISTF Grand Prix of England took part last week in Enderby with a large field of 63 players from 12 nations. It was great to see many close games even if in the end the two top seeds of the tournament reached the semi-finals. At this stage, Chris Short beat Chris Thomas on shots while Mark Gauci beat Nathan Dupont (4-3). In the final, Short scored the only goal of the game in the sudden death to win the title. Other winners in the categories were Elliott Bellefontaine (U19), Connor Bowden (U15), Mauro Manganello (Veterans), Margault Delval (Ladies) and Kye Arnold (U12).. In the team event, 14 teams took part. In the final, the Maltese team of Valletta beat the Belgians of AS Hennuyer (1-0) to catch the title.
Bob Green was the only representative from Australia. He managed to reach the quarter-finals of the veterans section. Well done Bob!
