Many of the players who take part in the HSA Hellenic Under-21 Championship for individuals have already gained experience in the HSA club competitions, and a select few are knocking on the door for inclusion in their senior national teams. The competition has established itself as an attraction for fans in its own right.
The superstars of tomorrow are ripe for discovery in the male youth competitions, the HSA Hellenic Under-19 Championship and HSA European Under-17 Championship. The U19 competition has featured a host of players that have gone on to fame and glory in the following years, while the U17 event offers an exciting first glimpse of youthful Subbuteo talent.

Every year, the top Hellenic women players strive for glory in the HSA Hellenic Women’s Championship final round, which sees many players become household names and the quality benchmark for women’s national team Subbuteo set higher with each edition.
The top players and many promising youngsters also make their mark at club level each season in the HSA Women’s Super League. After being staged for a number of years in the same city as the men’s HSA Super League final, the match now has its own separate venue, giving the event even greater exposure.
More and more girls are being attracted to Subbuteo, and those who have excelled find their way into their national youth teams and potential participation in the HSA Hellenic Women’s Under-19 Championship and HSA Hellenic Women’s Under-17 Championship. Each edition of the two competitions brings an evolution of tactical and technical skills, and projects the top women’s players of the future into the spotlight, as well as providing an important pathway in the young players’ development.
