A tournament to come in Toronto

Great news for subbuteo fans in Toronto. Allan Thronton is planning to set up the first Toronto Subbuteo League tournament in late February or early March, but before he can continue planning this he needs to make sure we have enough participants. We need at least 8 players to commit. The location is undecided yet, but Allan has his eye on a place that can supply a party room for free. There will be an entry fee to help cover costs of the prizes, etc. Allan is also thinking of supplying some teams to players who might not have any at cost, so if you know anyone who has played Subbuteo in the past, but have no equipment and would like to enter in the tournament they will be able to purchase a team. Allan will also need some volunteers to help organize it and if anyone who can bring their Subbuteo table (with mounted pitch) that would be great! So please fill out this short questionnaire/RSVP at if you are planning to play. Also, please forward this message to anyone who might be interested. All the fine details and rules will be determined after we reached the minimum 8 players. You can also email Allan if you have any question. Contact:

We would like to invite all the Subbuteo players and clubs in North America (Canada, Mexico, USA) to take part in this worthwhile event.
