How much is the pitch ? :)
The smaller one is £99 and the larger one £129.99. If you buy with the actual game set the price is £129.99 and £149.99, so its clearly better value to buy the game and set together.

That's a hell of a lot of money for a pitch! Is it real miniature grass or something??? :crazyeyes:

Well its not real but it is miniature 'grass', the sort used for model railways. Apparently the pitches are made on a 10mm lightweight board with a cork base and an underlay. I imagine there must be quite a bit of work involved.

Lee, they work OK for the game but I wouldn't use them for Subbuteo. The goals are much smaller than Subbuteo and you are using a large size ball. The idea of the base is that you can play the ball out of the area at any time even when not in possession. There is a rubber section on the rod which allows some flexibility for impact. There are also similar unrodded keepers for taking goalkicks. You place one finger down on the head of the player and flick the base to get a high clearance. Works well with practice.
