Cape Town Open 2019, October 19, 2019

Clinton Gähwiler (Cape Town City TFC) clinches the CT OPEN 2019

A rainy day in Cape Town provided the perfect backdrop to this year’s Open tournament. A relaxed, fun afternoon, with plenty of laughter, jibes and goals. And a truly fantastic display of the old Subbuteo equipment and accessories by local collector Brendon!

The final capped it all off – an epic affair, decided ultimately by a dramatic own-goal in the last minute of play. (Report by Clinton Gähwiler, CTCSC & SATFA President).

The Cape Town Open was played wit 8 Participants this year and shows a positive trend in the Western Cape. FISTF is happy to receive a first competition report from Southern Africa after some years of break. Well, the Cape is famous for its “Cape of good Hope.”
