Subbuteo is a group of table top games simulating team sports such as association football, cricket, both codes of rugby and hockey. The name is most closely associated with the football game, which for many years was marketed as "the replica of Association Football" or Table Soccer.
I got the figures from a thrift store, the football players are not showed here, only the bystanders. It has been discussed below about subbuteo scale. They are taller or almost like 1.72 german, russians soldiers etc.
