Yes! Subbuteo is alive in Hong Kong. Thanks to Antonio Carabillo', an Italian-born who lives in Hong Kong since 1997, the greatest table football can be played here.
We got two locations to play: Hung Hom and Tung Chung ( Lantau Island, next to Hong Kong Airport).
If anybody is interested to play or join the Club, please contact Antonio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hong Kong Dragons Subbuteo Club is now up and running. The club officially has only 2 players for the moment but hopefully more and more interest will be created in the next few months. Antonio Carabillo from Italy and local player Yuki Chong are the two members of the HKDSC. For any information about the club, feel free to contact Antonio Carabillo at email@example.com
