New Zealand has international flickers in Palmerston North




The was a Subbuteo tournament on September 23, 2017 in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The tournament was organized by Ignacio López who is the main organizer in the country. 8 players from 5 different nationalities (Chile, new Zealand, Colombia, Germany and... India) were taking part. In the final, it was a family affair between Ignacio López and his daughter Emilia and Ignacio won the game (1-0). Semi-finalists were representatives from "exotic" countries as Carlos Montoya from Colombia and Sunmeet Bhatia from India were on the podium. There are good hopes to see more events in the future in New Zealand and a closer collaboration with players from Australia.
