With all the excitement of the successful English Grand Prix still fresh in the mind, the English Subbuteo Association in partnership with the Table Soccer Players Association (TSPA) would like to announce the launch of our Subbuteo Table Football Circuits for the 2023/24 season.
This is currently an exciting time for Subbuteo and with the build up to the World Cup in Tunbridge Wells 2024 well underway, we wanted to mimic rule sets used in the coming World Cup in the circuits this season in preparation for the big event in September. Three different circuits will be played, and we believe “there’s Something for everyone”.
Here are the three circuits
English Championships Circuit
Played to FISTF Rules will be the English Championships with 6 rounds. The first flicking off on Sunday the 3rd of December 2023. This will be the circuits second season after 6 fantastic rounds last year, which saw Chris Thomas and Elliott Bellefontaine share the winner trophy and Gage Badger taking the U20’s trophy. We are expecting great things again this season with World Cup places up for grabs.
Subbuteo Old School Circuit
Old Rules (as played at Subbuteofest 23)
Played to the same old school rule set used at Subbuteofest 23 which will also be used at the World Cup, this will be a step back to the traditional roots of the game with 6 rounds of old school Subbuteo starting on Sunday the 17th of December 2023.
TSPA English National Circuit
The TSPA English National Circuit is a well-established circuit and has legends of the game including Rob Paterson and current champion Kevin Dyson who play in its ranks. Known as Big Ball subbuteo, the TSPA is enjoyed each season by many players who attend its events and will be a popular competition on the circuit. The TSPA will hold its AGM on the 22nd of October, so dates and venues for this circuit will follow shortly after.
To follow what's happening with all three of our English Circuits we have produced each circuit there own dedicated page on our website, so you can keep right up to date, round by round at https://www.englishsubbuteoassociation.com/english-circuits
