Samuel Curtis and Wolverhampton TFC win largest ever FISTF Satellite

This last weekend of January the Leicester Satellite took place. This event will go down in history because never before has a satellite brought together so many participants and teams !

No less than 48 individuals and 12 teams gathered in the largest city in the East Midlands.


A competition which saw the emergence of the young Sam Curtis (ENG/Yorkshire Phoenix & Dewsbury Moor TFC) against Mick Hammonds (ENG/Wolverhampton Table Football Club) in a final during which only one goal was scored.

The semi-finalists are the Welsh Chris Bedforf (WAL/Elstow Lions TFC) and Rudi Peterschinigg (ENG/Wobbly Hobby Subbuteo Club).

Sunday was reserved for the team event. Wolverhampton Table Football Club won against the Yorkshire club Phoenix & Dewsbury Moor TFC (2-1).

The semi-finalist teams were Elstow Lions TFC and Wobbly Hobby Subbuteo Club 2.

 At the same time, two individual consolation tournaments were organized in order to give a maximum number of matches to all players. Kye Arnold (ENG/Kent Invicta TFC) and Colin “Taz” Tarry (ENG/TSPA White Star) stood out by taking victory.
