Welcome back Hamburg (Starters Cup 2014)

the whole crew
Hamburg is back on the Subbuteo scene. Since 2012 a small group of friends of our sport create in the very traditional Millerntorstadium a new club called Subbuteo St. Pauli. On last weekend they played the Starters Cup, a tournament that is combination with WASPA since already three years. On Saturday as usually all "Starters" (new players/comebacker) are able to play some friendly matches and enjoyed instructions by skilled players. The "Helpers Cup" is the first tournament on every Starters Cup-Weekend, with the possibility for all the beginners to watch the good players in action.
