    Question Football game

    I had a football game given to me in 1975 -

    It consisted of a green plastic "pitch". All the players were on springs attached to the pitch and were positioned in a slight depression around them that allowed the ball to settle at their "feet". You moved the ball around by holding the players back and letting them go! (quite effective!)

    I always thought the game was a european import as it had German and I think Italian etc on the box

    Anyone rememeber this?

    Sounds like Chad Valley Soccer Stadium




    although this version seems to have switches to move the players, there was spring loaded player version. Will look for a pic

    That design of football game dates way back to the 1950's
    This is a more recent european knock-off in similar style

    I remember at school we had a similar game, though the players were free standing. The wasn't a full set of them due to breakages as they were on the fragile side.

    Different football game, but I had a Subbuteo goalkeeper who had to be retired injured with two badly broken ankles: he was replaced with a transfer from the Airfix paratroopers.

    My husband's little brother had this exact same game in the 70s, I remember playing it with him, but I can't think of the name and I've searched on google to no avail.
    I hope someone knows it.
