Laws of the Game
1. FIELD SURFACE
The field of play must be Subbuteo cotton-synthetic or, if competition rules permit, a plastic-synthetic playing surface except where competition rules permit an integrated combination of cotton-synthetic and plastic-synthetic materials.
The colour of surfaces must be green.
Where surfaces are used in competition matches between representative teams of national Subbuteo associations affiliated to FISA or international club competition matches, the surface must meet the requirements of the FISA Quality Programme for Subbuteo Pitches or the International Match Standard, unless special dispensation is given by The ISAB.
