University Games will also launch a heavyweight multi-media campaign including, TV, online, social media and print to support these product releases, which will run across the second half of 2022.

Gemma Lewington, Marketing Director for University Games, says: “Subbuteo is a nostalgic brand that has evoked childhood memories for many parents and grandparents for three-quarters of a century, and we hope that in this anniversary year, with the new products and media campaign, we can inspire even more of the next generation to get flicking and kicking!”
