SUBBUTEO Bulletin Board

From the BBC (21.1.2000)

"The makers of the table football game Subbuteo have announced that production will cease at the end of the current month.

Hasbro, who have sold some 500 million sets, admit that today's younger generations are more interested in computer games than Subbuteo.

The game was invented by keen birdwatcher Peter Adolph in 1947, who named it after the latin word for Hobby Hawk.Subbuteo's popularity grew as the profile of real football increased, and by 1987, the game had its own World Cup.Around 50,000 sets are sold in Britain each year and it is estimated that six times as many are sold around the world.

There remains a possibility that Subbuteo may return, in the form of a computer game."
