The Football Association (FA) and Subbuteo revealed the world’s first all-female set to celebrate the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final, which took place at Wembley between Arsenal and Chelsea.
The set was created to celebrate the women’s game, as explained by the FA’s head of marketing and commercial for women’s football Marzena Bogdanowicz.
“This new all-female Subbuteo set is a reflection of the rapid growth that women’s football is seeing in the UK right now,” she said.
The set is limited edition and will be available to win on social media in the next few months.
James Walker, senior vice president at toy company Hasbro, stated that he believes that the set is “recognition of the vital role that women’s football has in our culture,” while also noting that the product is a “special edition of Subbuteo”.
The first Subbuteo female playset will be on sale in 2018.
