OSC has made a commitment to promote and structure the sport of mini Subbuteo in Oceania, by means of competitions, courses and other proactive measures, and to encourage its members to do the same.
Tahiti and Solomon Islands have been the dominant forces on the OSC mini Subbuteo scene since the programme’s inception in 2017, with multiple appearances at FISA Mini Subbuteo World Cups, while regular mini Subbuteo activities are also now a common feature of a number of member association grassroots programmes.
Mini Subbuteo courses
The OSC and FISA deliver a comprehensive range of mini Subbuteo development and coaching courses. With the support of FISA, mini Subbuteo in Oceania also receives a major boost with the creation of new facilities such as the site at the national academy in New Caledonia under FISA Goal Project, along with goals and equipment under the mini Subbuteo Site Programme.
OSC mini Subbuteo on the world stage
In hosting the FISA mini Subbuteo World Cup 2020, Tahiti set the bar high for all future mini Subbuteo World Cups, while a magnificent performance on the pitch from their national team ‘Tiki Toa’ saw them finish in fourth place following a dramatic penalty shoot-out loss to five time winners Brazil in the playoff for third place.
Currently Tahiti sit xxxposition in the world rankings, while Solomon Islands are in xxxposition place, highlighting the prowess with which mini Subbuteo is played in the region.
