Custom DreadBall Pitch

WinnersDBPitch2013

The O.C.P. Patriots (Irish DreadBall Champions) play defence versus the Zegema Beach Zephyrs (UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall Champions) at Thomond Park at some designated point in the future.

I am the current Irish DreadBall Champion.  Mantic supplied me with this prize pitch as a rather nifty functional trophy.

The rigid one piece polycarbonate/aluminium laminate (at least, thats what I think its made out of) arrived yesterday along with a large box of miniatures as a prize for my UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall win a couple of weeks ago.  I havent had a chance to play a game on the pitch yet but I hope to remedy that over the Xmas break.

Of minor note is the inclusion of “Thomond Park” on the pitch (top right in the ropey photo above).  Thomond Park is a significant Irish rugby stadium that also hosts the Irish DreadBall Nationals, amusingly enough.  To continue the entertainment value of winning a “sporting” event at Thomond, I asked Mantic to make sure that the stadiums name featured on the pitch.  I havent the slightest interest in rugby, but many of my regular opponents do, so it adds another level of amusement to me being the champ of a “sport” crowned at Thomond 🙂
