The Mundials are Subbuteo’s most-loved goals thanks to their continental style and relative rarity.
The goals were launched in the 1980s as updated versions of the equally popular Championship goals (C181) and secured legendary status among collectors and players because of their easy-on-the-eye style and boxy net to keep shots from bouncing back out.
The Mundials were quite fiddly to actually put together and the plastic construction meant they were a little unstable, with the ball often rolling through the net when a particularly hard shot was taken.
However, that is about to be fixed because Subbuteo World has launched new Pegasus Mundial goals that look just like the real thing but have the added benefit of being made from metal.
Pegasus is Subbuteo World’s more ‘pro’ Subbuteo brand, featured on high quality astro pitches. It also includes goals in the range and Subbuteo World has added three new goal types for UK customers to get their hands on – and just in time given difficulties in sourcing quality metal goals from abroad at the moment.
The Pegasus Mundial goals are priced at just £27 and come ready to use. They also have four holes for fixing it to a playing surface.
Subbuteo World says: “Each goal is powder coated (not painted) so that the paint is very hardwearing. The netting is strong and hugs the goal frame so well that you get a superb looking goal that will last. There are no hooks needed on these frames to attach the netting, this gives a smooth professional finish that cannot be matched by any other goal.”
Subbuteo World has also launched metal tournament goals for £47 and metal Championship goals for £47 on its website. All three sets of goals are available to order now.
Pegasus metal goals join a wide selection of options for those who want a metal goal frame, but they are one of the few available in the UK. Astrobase in Italy has a wide range of metal goals and does deliver to the UK, while Scottish-based Flicks for Kicks imports the heavy-duty Biemme goals beloved of players of the modern game.
Extreme Works, widely regarded as the brand many top players use for the modern Table Football variation of the game, also produce metal goals.
