Bubble Soccer is the recreation or sport of playing soccer whilst encased in an inflatable bubble which covers the player’s upper body and head. Bubble soccer can be played in or outdoors for children or adults want who want to have fun like when you were a kid. Not the participating type? Well, your gonna laugh just as much watching, minus the experience of being a human bumper car.

Bubble soccer is, for the most part, exactly what it sounds like: full-contact soccer where each player wears a plastic bubble from thigh to head approximately five feet in diameter. The bubble itself is a souped-up version of those inflatable sumo wrestling costumes, although your hands remain inside the bubble at all times. No, seriously.
Watching bubble soccer reminds us that this planet has conditioned us to expect certain outcomes in certain situations. For example: when people run into each other, people get laid out. In bubble soccer, we expect the same outcome, but it never comes to pass. Instead, one (or both) bubble athletes fall to the ground, legs waving in the air in a desperate search for stability. Bodies fly, but everyone is safe because they’re inside a bubble.
Bubble soccer, of course, began as a lark. The idea was hatched by Norwegian comedians/television hosts Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden in 2011as a joke, which makes sense because it’s the world’s sport being played by people encased in bubbles. At first, the game didn’t really have any rules. It was basically the NFL Blitz version of soccer, with bubble-mediated contact allowed any place, any time. Want to deck a player after he releases a pass? Go for it.
