Subbuteo in Spain?

Postby Donegal Subbuteo » 17 Mar 2017, 10:41

Hello again folks. Anyone know if there's any form of table soccer being played in Southern Spain, Malaga area or further south? I've been in touch with someone in Gibraltar, which is not far away from where we're staying. We'll be there at the start of April. Thanks.

Sorry I can't help you, but good to hear from you again.

It's apparent that you're still enjoying your Subbuteo. Enjoy your holiday, hope you find some enjoyable games out there.

I've always found it strange that Subbuteo is not that high profile in Spain...well not like in Italy anyway.
Gibraltar is a great place, you'll love it if you haven't been before. PA passed away there 23 years ago today, so holds bad memories for me personally, but would like to go back one day if I can face it.

I've played in Murcia - just south of Alicante - and I've played against Barcelona. But they're both a fair way from you in Gibraltar.

You have two Subbuteo/Table Soccer Clubs around that zone more or less.

Tiburones FM, in Estepa (Seville), with a fantastic permanent headquarters with more than 20 tables to play. Actually they are they are the number 1 Club in FISTF rankings ( http://fistf.com/rankings/ ). The Club is running by Antonio Montaño and Luis Felipe Mendez, and surprisingly they don’t have (or I can’t find) an active web/facebook page right now but I can send you their e-mails by private if you want so you can get in touch.

The other Club is the FM La Plazoleta, at Mijas, they are a more small Club, and you can get in touch with them in their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/fmlaplazoleta/?fref=ts

If you have the chance to go to Estepa don’t miss it, it is really worthing, besides I think they sell a lot of Subbuteo stuff if you are interested. The pictures below are of a Championship they organized the last weekend.

Hope it helps !

PS: and Gibraltar is also a very nice place to play, with really good people there and a permanent headquarters now I believe, your contact there will know, I guess…

Odd because the Spanish had a huge Scalextric production going on in the 60's thru the 90's called Exin, seeing as how Scalextric and Subbuteo are fairly linked in the toy 'mentality' (football and racing cars) it is surprising Subbuteo isn't abundant there..try finding a club in Eastern Europe for either!!
