This is a fans’ site dedicated to Subbuteo Cricket, the best “table top” cricket game ever produced. It’s based on a collection of every playing piece appearing on price lists or in brochures from the game’s launch in 1949 to its withdrawal in 1983.
If you were a player way back when, I hope this site brings back some very happy memories. The game still has a very active following in the UK and internationally, so if you’re an enthusiast looking to buy a set today, or even a collector, I hope the site is a useful source of information for you.

About this site and this collection. A brief history of the game & links to other sites.
Baize and nylon pitches, wickets and stumps, fences, scoreboards and those great spectators.
From the earliest card sets to the floodlit era, you can see each set and its contents here.
Full copies of the rules for the flat players era & the 00 scale sets, plus other paperwork.
The 00 scale teams, all the different players from the box sets and some new 20:20 kits.
Although manufacture ceased in the 80s the game is going strong & growing.
Feature – A trip back to 1973
A big thanks to Craig for sending in pictures of his unique 1973 West Indies team.
There are many great new repainted teams being created now. You can see some excellent examples in the Players & Teams section.
But what I love about Craig’s team was that it was painted for him by his uncle back in the 70s. See more pictures here.
