Silver Castle Park

Post by takis2003 »

Here is my effort in creating a Subbuteo stadium, which was always an ambition of mine ever since I was introduced to the world of Subbuteo back in the late seventies, but never had the space or the funds to pursue it.

Silver Castle Park comprises of Subbuteo red/blue stands with Zeugo corner stands and seats and other accessories by SubbuteoStadium.com. It has a total capacity of 7,564 (7.264 sitting and 300 standing) spectators, which I have and need to find the time to place them on the stands. It is also equipped with 6 mini cameras (4 at the corner stands and 2 either side of the tunnel stand) plus a PTZ mini camera in the middle stand opposite the tunnel. The cameras are connected via a DVR and are transmitting video to a iPad mini, serving as a TV screen, placed on the North Stand.

The scoreboard (the iOS Subboard app installed on another iPad mini) has been placed on the South Stand.

There are four floodlights at the corners (with LED lights from SubbuteoStadium.com) as well as a strip of LED lights on each main stand. As can be seen from the photos below, the light emitted is more than adequate (an understatement actually) to play night games.

You may notice that the pitch has patches of dampness, caused by an accidental water spill. I cannot change it as it is fixed on the board, but the playing surface has not suffered any damage and is fully playable,

Also, the quality of some photos is not great (may have to do with the available lighting) and will try to take better ones later.

Finally, a couple of videos (the links to which are provided below) are available, one with the view from the PTZ camera and the other, an aerial view taken with a mini drone.

Looks fantastic ! Good luck adding the spectators ....

Would the floodlights only be sufficient for night games or are the LED strips needed as well ? Am thinking of getting some for my green and tan stadium

Many thanks for your kind words.

Regarding the floodlights, I believe the four corner ones should be sufficient for night games. I will check it this weekend and let you know.
