ITV’s recorded footage showed the Stadium of Fingers, among other scenes, representing this year’s FA Cup shocks.
Richard Wells, sales director of Paul Lamond Games, said: “It’s fantastic that Subbuteo was in the spotlight prior to the kick-off of such a momentous match and that the game was in front of so many football fans for almost three minutes during prime time viewing.
“The coverage was a real boost to the Subbuteo brand and we are delighted with this extensive coverage which couldn’t have been aired at a better time.”
New developments to the classic version of Subbuteo include a luxury playing pitch, enhanced detailing of the figures and paint application, as well as newly-shaped bases making it easier to move the players in a straight line.
