Strange pitch markings.

Postby barrychuckle » 27 Feb 2017, 16:47

I know it's a modern nylon pitch so probably be of little interest but I've never seen this before. Any ideas?

MK is a brand of electrical hardware (fuse boxes, sockets etc) so might be a promotional item

Could well be as their logo is the same.

What size is it, Barry ? :?

Full Subbuteo size ? Five a side ?

I'd be surprised if MK saw this as a viable advertising route but it does look like their logo.

It's a full size pitch. I found it in a early 90's basic 60140 box set (leeds v Sampdoria).

I have sent a message to Trev, who was the SSG Boss at the time to see if he knows its origin

Trevor was the SSG boss until 2000, has said it was not done whilst he was there, so it is post 2000

Would I be right in saying that after 2000 the only sets with nylon pitches were the Manchester United edition which had the team badge in the centre circle and the deluxe edition.
