The Subbuteo muddy pitch is now available as an astropitch

The Table Football Monthly muddy pitch is the must-have Subbuteo product of the year and there is a new exciting option on sale this month.

Subbuteo World has announced it has used Keith Littler’s popular design to create a Pegasus Astroturf version of the pitch and it will be on sale before Christmas.

The website says: “We thought at one point this wouldn’t be possible. However with great persistence we have managed to produce a Muddy Table Soccer Pitch on AstroTurf. With the kind permission from Keith Littler at Table Football Monthly to use his artwork our Pegasus Rubber Backed Full Size Table Soccer Muddy Pitch AstroTurf will available in the next 2 weeks and in time for Christmas delivery. We are the only AstroTurf manufacturer to achieve this along with our striped & circle cut AstroTurf.”

Subbuteo World says a second version, the half-size muddy pitch astro, will be on sale early in 2021.

The muddy pitch design was created by Keith Littler who wanted a classic feel to a Subbuteo pitch based on the muddy pitches of the 1970s. He explained how the pitch was created on Subbuteo.Online here.

The pitches have proved to be a hit with Subbuteo fans. Fast-running and evoking memories of mudbath FA Cup ties means fans have been scrambling to get their hands on the muddy pitch design.

It is likely the astro version, while it won’t be cheap, will be equally popular with fans of the game. Keep an eye on Subbuteo World between now and Christmas for updates on the pitch.

The Pegasus pitch is Subbuteo World’s top-of-the-range pitch and the rubber-backed surface is available in various patterns and designs include chequered and circular patterns. It is also available in half size and in box sets such as the Pegasus five-a-side.

Astropitches were originally created by Subbuteo and sold in tubes to ensure they did not crease. Widely regarded as the best type of playing surface, they are faster and less prone to defects. Astro pitches are used in all major table football tournaments because of their durability and play style.
