South African Subbuteo Championship / Cape Town Open 2016
The 2016 South African Subbuteo Championships were the first ever national event with representation from 3 different parts of the country - Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town. The event was held on Sunday 20 November, in one of the fantastic venues at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa.
Pretoria Flickers flew an entire team down to Cape Town for the tournament, and this enabled us to kick the day off with Cape Town City SC’s first ever team event. John Fishlock’s late equaliser against Keegan Jooste proved to be the decisive moment in securing a 2-1 win for Cape Town City. A special thank you to Canterbury for the T shirts which were proudly worn by the CTC team.
Big thank you’s go to Lee and the Sports Science Institute of SA for the wonderful venue, hospitality and support. Thank you once again also to Canterbury, and to all the local players who contributed both financially and otherwise to making such a fantastic day - an absolute highlight in the three years of Cape Town City SC’s existence.
At the prize-giving, a special dedication was made (in absentia) to WASPA’s Vincent Coppenolle, for all the highly appreciated time and effort which he puts into the game globally, and especially for all the support which he has given us over the years in South Africa.
