The Playing Surface Has Been Chosen
April has been a hectic month here at Thrudball HQ. We started by releasing the event's ruleset, and then we released 30 more tickets; we've since sold every single one of them.
Now, at the end of the month, are delighted to announce that we are getting new pitches made for Thrudball 2021! These have been designed and created solely for our needs at Thrudball as a Blood Bowl tournament running in the aftermath of Covid-2019.
Each pitch is made from neoprene, but has a protective, wipe-clean surface, allowing us to disinfect each one fully, in between rounds, allowing us to keep our coaches as safe as possible.
Each pitch has the normal BB2020 pitch, along with a sevens pitch marked in red, a passing chart, a scatter template, and a throw-in template. It also has the current weather and kick-off tables, along with a Bench, KO, Morgue, and Sin Bin box.
Fancy Your Own?
Not only are these pitches going to be at Thrudball, but in partnership with Custom Patriot Games, we are able to offer these pitches to you as well!
They cost £30 each, plus postage (£7 UK, RotW at cost, or free collection at Thrudball available). This price will only be available until the first of July as a preorder (the pitches will be manufactured in July, with delivery in time for Thrudball).
Any orders after this will be processed directly by Custom Patriot and posted out by them, but will cost £33 plus postage. That means these aren't a limited run, but you will have to act now to take advantage of the early bird price.
Even better, you can customise the pitch with your name! Instead of having the words THRUDBALL in the end zone, you can replace this with any text (20 characters max) that you want, i.e. your NAF name, club/league name, etc.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon; stay safe in the meantime!
