Subbuteopia: Trailer For Upcoming Documentary About Subbuteo

Subbuteopia – trailer from L@SocietàSintetica on Vimeo.

A documentary about Subbuteo, the legendary table soccer game, is in the works and scheduled for release this year.

The film includes the story of the Parodi brothers, one of the main distributors of Subbuteo in Europe since 1971. When they could no longer obtain new Subbuteo items from Hasbro, they produced a clone of the game named Zëugo which used the classic hand painted look and figures from Subbuteo’s heyday in the 1970s. More recently, in 2002, the bothers obtained a license from Hasbro to make new Subbuteo products for the Italian market, and to thus keep the Subbuteo legacy alive.

Learn more about the documentary on the Subbuteopia website.
