All of this Subbuteo is on sale in Italy this weekend and we are jealous

If you are following Subbuteo.Online you will know by now that we are completely obsessed with Subbuteo Lab, a new shop in Certaldo, Italy selling huge collections of the game.

So it is no surprise that another video has caught our attention – and this time it shows an astonishing amount of lightweight Subbuteo from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Subbuteo Lab has decamped the store to Genoa this weekend and the annual Model Show, a massive event bringing together models and toys including Lego, Barbies, Harry Potter toys and model railways.

The also includes Italy’s favourite table top game – Subbuteo. Not only are there stalls selling Subbuteo but the Model Show also has tournaments for those who want to get hands-on with the game. That means Subbuteo Lab has brought with it a huge collection of teams, pitches and accessories and it is all for sale.

The collection of accessories on sale is vast – we spotted hundreds of lightweight-era teams including Premier League sides, boxes of balls and a healthy set of heavyweight teams in the short video.

It is enough to want to make you want to book a flight to Genoa and arrive for the final two days of the fair. It runs until Sunday so there is plenty of time to get there for a last minute shopping trip.

It is not the first time we’ve been wowed by videos from Subbuteo Lab. Last month a tour of the shop video showed they stocked everything a collector needs and they even have a full stadium set up in the store.

Luckily for UK collectors who may be casting envious eyes towards Italy at the moment the UK Subbuteo Fair is on its way in May.
