Turn the beautiful game into the hilarious game with Bubble Football!
This is a fast-paced, hilarious phenomenon that's as crazy as the name suggests! Bubble Football, or Zorb Football, is a laugh-a-minute way to spend some quality time with the guys on a Stag Do in Reading. This incredible activity is fairly new to the Stag Do scene, but we love it.
You and the guys will split into two teams and each of you will wear a giant inflatable ball, then it's time for the mayhem to begin! The aim of the game is to score more goals than the other team but we think the laughs are the most important part.
We could try to convince you it'll be a fiercely competitive game of football, but it won't. You'll just be on the floor the entire time!
It's unique and most importantly, hilariously competitive!
What is Bubble Football?
As we said, it's the world's greatest and favourite game - but better!
While Bubble football follows the same objectives and overall rules of a regular football match, you'll now have your torso and arms encased in a giant inflatable ball.
You'll split into teams as you don your giant inflatable ball and then it's time for the real football mayhem to begin. Tackles come flying in from all directions and no one is in control of their movements, its a special kind of chaos!
The aim of the game is to score as many goals against the opposing team. You know, like football...
While the same rules of 5-a-Side apply, that's about where the similarities end. Tackles fly in from every direction, it's unique and most importantly, hilariously competitive and fun.
Why do Bubble Football on a Stag Do?
Well, its hilarious and Bubble Football isn't even the only game you could play, there are also these 'mini games' you could try.
Bubble Bowling is as good as it sounds. A group of pins, better known as grown men strapped into their inflatable bubble balls, stand at one end of the pitch while another player tries to run and dive at the group in an attempt to knock as many pins over as possible. Absolutely try this, don't even think about it twice, just be sure to get it on video!
Bubble Bulldog, similar (yet more chaotic) to the game you played and loved as kids. This is where one player, the bulldog, tries to capture as many players as possible by stopping them from getting from one end of the pitch to the other. Whoever gets knocked down then also becomes a bulldog.
Bubble Sumo is as you might expect, 2 players go head to head inside the center circle and attempt to knock each other out of the circle. Who ever is left standing is the winner, simple ay?
So if you're playing a 5 a side game of Bubble Football and you fancy mixing it up, these games are ideal to keep the laughs going.
How did Bubble Football come to be?
Norwegians Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden first invented Bubble Football as a joke and it first appeared on a Norwegian TV program in 2011.
Little did they know then, Bubble Football would end up taking the world by storm and become one of the most popular stag party activities on the market.
Following its appearance on Norwegian TV, Bubble Football soon made its way to the UK with the help of Lee Moseley. By 2014, the sport had reached as far as New Zealand and the United States, where it is overseen by its governing body, the BBA.
And in 2018, the world was introduced to the first ever Bubble Football International Cup. So, be sure to get in plenty of practice during you Stag weekend, you could end up becoming Bubble Football champions - probably not, but there is nothing wrong with wishful thinking.
