On Wednesday the 25th of June the Melbourne Subbuteo Club hosted the Coupe de Melbourne featuring 5 players including John Ho from Singapore.
The group stage was a tense affair which saw 30 goals scored in 10 games. From the group stage Benji Batten and John Ho progressed to the final with Luke Radziminski and David Simpson set to contest the 3rd place playoff.
Luke managed to claim 3rd place after beating David 3-2 in a thriller. The final itself was a fantastic game of Subbuteo, end to end action between Benji and John produced many chances which john was able to convert two and take out the Coupe De Melbourne winning the final 2-0.

A great tournament, huge thanks to John Ho for coming to play and for your advice!
There was also time for a lucky draw to win the TFAS/OCC official Polo Tees … which was drawn by Benij’s mother. The Lucky Player was Luke Radziminski !!
Hopefully this is the start of Subbuteo Melbourne meeting more regularly. In the future anyone is welcome to host a couple of players for some friendly games or competitions.One of his first action, after receiving his prize, was to try it out and he commented “I will wear it for future tournaments !!”
