Bubble Football Barcelona
Bubble football, Bubble Bump football, Bubble soccer or Zorb football, are all names for this great game or sport of playing football whilst covered in an inflated bubble or inflated torus, similar to a Zorb, which is used in Zorbing. It covers the player’s upper-body and head, so they are well protected and is hollow inside, allowing air to flow through. Players are harnessed in and have 2 grab handles to hold on to whilst playing. The sport has become incredibly popular, with many people all over the world trying it and is even being played in football leagues.
It was first created in Norway by Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden and made its first appearance on their TV show, Golden Goal. Bubble Football reached the UK when British entrepreneur Lee Moseley tried to get it started. He was rejected by potential investors who thought it had no future, so he personally financed the idea himself and the rest, as they say, is history.
Usually, the game is played outdoors on grass and AstroTurf (artificial grass) or indoors on a wooden or firm surface. Bubble football can be played by anyone over the age of about 10 years old and with minimum height restrictions. It is often played during a Stag do, Birthday parties, amongst friends, or can also be used for corporate team building days.
There are also many extra games that can be played with bubble footballs and these are usually incorporated into the main event for extra fun. Some of these are:
- Bubble bowling
- Bubble sumo
- British Bulldog
