Bubble soccer is a unique kind of contact sport that is fast becoming a popular thing to do. To most ordinary people, the idea of playing soccer whilst you are in a bubble is silly but enthusiasts say it’s the best sporting idea anyone has ever come up with. To the uninitiated, Bubble soccer is a kind of soccer played by teams in full soccer uniforms, playing the traditional soccer formation but they are all encased in individual plastic bubbles that keep their upper bodies including the head and the hands encased within the bubble. It is a contact sport with tons of impact amongst players but the impact is painless. All it does is destabilize your opponent so you can maneuver the soccer ball around them with your feet.
Why is it popular?
Bubble soccer might have started as a joke but there are teams forming all over the globe who play actual league games making it more than just a lark but something to be taken seriously. The one thing that has made bubble soccer so popular is that it takes away the rules on body slams and contact that you find in conventional soccer. Bubble soccer players are expected to intentionally ram against their bubbled encased opponents.
Finding a bubble ball for yourself or team
The sport has grown in stature and has its own association, the National Association of Bubble Soccer (NABS), which manages the “sport” and reviews the way it is played. There are over 30 leagues located across the United States alone.
Besides the football clothing and shoes, the single most important equipment is the bubble itself.
