This Wednesday there was a very special tournament in Maida, Catanzaro, Italy. There were three categories under the theme of "old subbuteo". The categories were as follows: HW, LW and Replay (only Top Spin material). The three tournaments were played under the theme of European Football. In the end, winners were Alessandro Corigliano (Chelsea) in HW category, Nicola Carelli (Inter) in LW category and Antonio Marullo (Panathinaikos) in Replay category. Thanks to Antonio Marullo for organizing things and sending the results.

The AGFA Cup is a great link between the three eras of Australian Subbuteo (70s, the 80s-90s, and now post-2010) and that tradition continued over the weekend with the staging of the 16th Cup at Good Games Chatswood.
A highlight of the tournament was the appearance of some new faces — Mark Killingbeck and Heidi van Scheik of Hipfingerz and young Ollie Kruse for the Northern Falcons.
With 16 players, four groups were lined up.
In group 1, young Gabriel Lombardi caused a surprise with a 0-0 draw against Fabrizio, while he also beat Harley Ullrich 1-0. In Group 2, Gary Hosie clinically disposed of Tony Credentino 3-0, while Daniele did the same to Johnny Ball. Gary then beat Daniele 1-0 in a tense encounter, while Johnny eclipsed Tony 1-0.
In group 3, Hermann Kruse edged out Dave Sultana 1-0, before scoring an absolute cracker in his 2-1 loss to Raffaele Lombard. In Group 4, Steve and Adrian continued their ongoing rivalry, with Steve clinching a 1-0 win to take the group.
Daniele gained revenge in the quarterfinals, beating Gary 1-0, while Adrian pipped Hermann 1-0 and Raffaele beat Steve by the same score, as Fabrizio overcame Gabriel 2-0.
Many thanks to Sonny at Good Games and the rest of the crew for hosting us.

|The five players|
|Benoit and Giancarlo in action|
Pierre commented it was a good day of play: "Two of our best players could not attend so things were easier than expected for me but we had fun in all our games. I told our new players competing against Americans would be something different as the level is high in the US. The beginners will learn more in the future, they just need more experience."
There are good hopes to see another revival of the game in Canada in the near future: "Buying material from Europe is very expensive and that's maybe one of the reasons why some guys in other Canadian cities stopped playing but thanks to Dario Passadore, there are hope to get cheaper material thanks to a new e-shop."
Benoit Racette seemed to be confident about the future: "We will have more tournaments in 2017. The great news is that we have about 10 potential new players."
It seems like there are good hopes for the future of Subbuteo table football in Montreal. Let's cross the fingers!
