5-a-side Subbuteo table

On Christmas Eve, our daughters found this handy Subbuteo pitch under the Christmas tree. What a surprise: Finally, they got a small 5-a-side pitch and were able to reach every spot on the field for the very first time. Thanks, Santa!

That’s the 5-a-side pitch I bought from Astrobase/Italy. Unfortunately, it didn’t come with a sticky back so I had to use a spray adhesive to mount it on the board.

The dimensions of the playing area are 44 x 74 cm. The whole pitch measures 50 x 90 cm. So you know what size your MDF board should be at least.

I did not use the surrounding barriers that where included in the box. Instead, I sawed four wooden strips, painted them white…

I fixed some self-adhesive velours film on both goal side barriers. Your players will be thankful for this protection!

Almost ready: Our 5-a-side Subbuteo pitch, still without the two metal goals that where included in the set.

This time, I designed my own ad labels and printed them on photo paper.

Well, this is the day after Christmas Eve. Our youngest one has just occupied the 5-a-side pitch. What a fun! P.S.: Don’t miss the magentic scoring board I created.
