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.
