Subbuteo enthusiasts will flock to Maidenhead next month for a chance to make some new signings and test their flicking and kicking skills.
The Women's Royal Voluntary Service centre in York Road will be the new venue for the annual Subbuteo Fair on March 17.
The fair, which used to be held at Boyne Hill Cricket Club, has grown to be recognised as one of the most popular and best events for fans of the table-top football game in the UK.
Collectors and traders will get the chance to get their hands on some merchandise before the tournament kicks off in the afternoon.
An expanded field of 36 players from the UK and Europe will be competing in the tournament due to popular demand.
Event organiser Ian Pusey said: "This is the fourth year there has been a tournament, and we're looking forward to the largest one yet.
"It should be a good day."
