University Games launches first ever all female Subbuteo main game

The Lionesses set is the first ever all-female Subbuteo Main Game Set to hit the mass market.

2021 will see a UK-first, as University Games launches the hotly tipped Subbuteo Official England Lionesses Main Game Set – the first ever all-female Subbuteo Main Game Set for the mass market.

The game will launch in May, with the detailed Lionesses Subbuteo players sporting the England kit and will feature players of differing ethnicity.

The fully licensed Official England Lionesses Subbuteo Main Game will contain the 11-player Lionesses Team, an 11-player Red and White Team, along with the Subbuteo pitch, ball and goal sets.

Mark Jones, sales director at University Games, believes the new Lionesses Set will make big steps to continue to bridge the gap between the younger generation and the current Subbuteo enthusiasts.

“We are all ever hopeful for a football-themed summer with the Euros currently planned to kick off this June, and with the Women’s European Championships now scheduled for summer 2022, the new England Lionesses Main Game is certain to be a very welcome and timely addition to the range,” he commented.

“Subbuteo was a best seller for 2020 and a top Christmas toy following a successful re-launch and a heavyweight multi-media campaign, which will continue throughout 2021 and feature the new addition to the range.”

The new Lionesses Main Game will join a comprehensive range that includes the Subbuteo Main Game, Official England Main Game, as well as the new Virtual Assistant Referee (VAR) Set and enhanced Fences Set accessories which launched earlier this year.
