A very special Subbuteo job lot is on sale on eBay and fans are being urged to bid for a good cause.
Wobbly Hobby Shop has listed a Subbuteo box set and six heavyweight teams on eBay and it is no normal auction. The proceeds from the sale will go towards the English Subbuteo Association’s plan to host the FISTF Subbuteo World Cup in 2024.
The governing body of table football in England has revealed plans to bring Subbuteo back to its spiritual home in Tunbridge Wells and has set a target of £50,000 to help with costs associated with the tournament in 2024. The job lot has been donated by Raymond Daws of Leicester and Subbuteo fans are being urged to bid generously.
Alan Lee of Wobbly Hobby Shop says: “Subbuteo Collection being sold in aid of the FISTF SUBBUTEO WORLD CUP 2024 to be hosted in Tunbridge Wells. #SubbuteoIsComingHome. Generously donated to the English Subbuteo Association by Raymond Daws of Leicester.”
“The collection is in superb condition. Boxes have no writing, corners are all intact including the box set. One Newcastle player and both keepers are reglued, otherwise all teams are perfect.
“Please be generous with your bids as all proceeds will be added to the gofundme crowd funding account to raise money to host the FISTF Subbuteo World Cup in Tunbridge Wells in 2024. https://gofund.me/9e422a36 #SubbuteoIsComingHome”
The lot ends on 5 March at 2pm and you can bid here.
