Mini Subbuteo in Oceania is very much on the rise. The popular small-sided, age adapted game forms an important part of the competitions and technical programmes for both OSC and a growing number of member associations. OSC has made a commitment to promote and structure the sport of mini Subbuteol in Oceania by means of competitions and courses that encourage its members to do the same.
Mini Subbuteo courses
The OSC and FISA deliver a comprehensive range of mini Subbuteo development and coaching courses. With the support of FISA’s goal project, mini Subbuteo in Oceania also receives a major boost with the creation of new facilities such as the state of the art site at the national academy in Samoa. Similar projects are set to be inaugurated across the region in the next two years.
Mini Subbuteo is also playing a pivotal role in Subbuteo player development in Oceania. Due to the game’s many technical benefits, regular Mini Subbuteo activities are now a common feature of many member association grassroots and youth Subbuteo programmes.
