Subbuteo Skills Sessions Calendar

22 April 2019 - 22 April 2019
12:30pm - 2pm


Before the days of FIFA, before the days of Pro Evo, ISS or Actua Soccer...before Super Soccer, Kick-Off, SWOS or even Pele's Soccer on the Atari 2600, there was only one way to play as your heroes at home: the mighty Subbuteo.

The iconic table-top football game has held a place in the hearts of football fans since it first hit the nation's living rooms in 1948. Now you can join us on Saturday afternoons to either dust off those forgotten flick-to-kick skills, or to introduce a whole new generation to the beautiful game.

No need for you to iron the pitch, superglue your centre forward back together or spend 20 minutes arguing about whose turn it is. Our pitches are all set up, and our volunteers are ready to provide everything from an introduction to advanced coaching, as well as to referee any inter-family grudge matches that may have needed settling since half your team was accidentally Hoovered up in 1986.

Join us in the Play Gallery on Level 2 between 12:30pm and 2pm for all the action!
