New winter and beach soccer Subbuteo pitches announced

Subbuteo World has revealed it will be launching three new astroturf pitches in the coming weeks including a winter pitch and a ‘beach soccer’ pitch.

The Subbuteo store announced it will release a muddy astropitch by the weekend based on the hugely successful Table Football Monthly cloth muddy pitch, designed by Keith Littler. The Pegasus pitch was initially planned for before Christmas but needed to be tweaked before going on sale.

The muddy pitch was originally printed on cloth by Keith but the design has now been used for the Pegasus Astroturf range.

Subbuteo World has also announced two brand new pitches will be arriving as part of the Pegasus astropitch range – a winter pitch and beach soccer pitch in both full and half sizes.

The winter pitch is likely to feature a snow effect and should prove popular given Subbuteo’s own winter cloth pitch was in high demand in 2020 when it was released. That pitch was cloth and featured a snow effect for the first time on an official Subbuteo product.

The new beach soccer pitch will be a completely unique product and will be the first ever sand-effect pitch on sale at Subbuteo World in the UK.

In an announcement, Subbuteo World said: “Apologies for the delay, we were hoping to release the pitch before Christmas but Keith and I felt the pitch needed more work.

“Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved we now feel it’s ready! Subbuteoworld will have the half size Muddy AstroPitch for sale on our website by next weekend. This will be followed by The Pegasus Beach Soccer Astropitch full & half size, The Pegasus-TFM Winter Astropitch full & half size and the Pegasus-TFM Muddy Astropitch full size.”

Prices for the pitches have not yet been announced. A full size Pegasus astro costs around £55 on the Subbuteo World website.

Current pitches in the range include chequered, circles and lined ‘grass’ patterns. The range also includes a 5-a-side arena, a light blue pitch reminiscent of indoor pitches, and a massive athletic track to surround a pitch.
