The American Subbuteo Association has announced that Grand Rapids TSC will host the inaugural American Subbuteo National League.
The exciting ASNL opens play next year and is to feature at least two divisions with the country’s top flickers. Each division will be comprised of eight players competing in a 14-match round-robin format over two dates.
Day 1 is scheduled for February 4, 2017, at Step Ahead Sports in Bolingbrook, Illinois. This spacious indoor soccer venue hosted the 2015 ASA Nationals and is the home of our good friends (and rivals!), Chicago Table Soccer Club.
Day 2 is to take place on August 4 in the Grand Rapids area. The location is the Courtland Township Hall, 7450 14 Mile Road, Rockford, Michigan, 49341. This is the same comfortable space where we staged the 2016 Flicko de Mayo ASA/FISTF Satellite tournament.
The ASNL will award trophies to the top three players in each division. But every match will count since the league has adopted a promotion and relegation system. The bottom two players in D1 will drop down to the lower division and will be replaced by the top two D2 players.
There is a $50 registration fee for the ASNL. To register visit the ASA website.
