Bubble Football Game in Budapest

Would you like to learn more about the history of bubble soccer? Being fun and popular activity today, its journey had a very bumpy ride at the beginning.

Bubble soccer, or bubble football as known in many parts of the world, is a Norwegian invention. It was created by Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden in 2011 when they wanted to give a hilarious twist to traditional football. They never expected to start such a spectacular and funny sport all around the world.  The game was brought to the UK by Lee Moseley, who decided to finance the activity there.

Bubble soccer in the USA

After posting a video from Italy about a bubble ball game that went viral, it reached New Zealand and the United States by 2014. In the USA the game had to face many issues because it was difficult to find available, high-quality equipment that resulted in the failure of many early-adopters. As there were basically no industry standards about what constitutes as a real bumper ball, and insurers were not willing to support the game because of the lack of history and proper management, bubble soccer was off to a difficult start in the USA.

The National Association of Bubble Soccer was founded in early 2014, which intended to solve all of these initial problems. They’ve put the rule book together, standardized the bubble ball for adults and kids, adopted the traditional rules of football, but with the allowance of full contact. As a result, insurers and affiliates were willing to underwrite contracts.

The first bubble soccer ball championship has been held in 2015 in Las Vegas, called “The Bubble Bowl”, where Canadians, Americans and the best players of the Bubble Soccer Association competed for Vince Lumbubble Trophy.

Bubble Football Fun Facts

The Dude Perfect team flew all the way from Texas to challenge the Manchester City Legends’ team where all the players are professionals. The Dude Perfect formation is known for their precise ball techniques and they’ve already had lots of experience and success in the field of football or even basketball.

At first the players of Dude Perfect were a bit insecure about the outcome of the game. They realized quickly that the Manchester players are well accustomed and a team of professionals who are really good at what they do. During the game the men have realized that they don’t have to aim for the hoop, they only need to hit and knock over the other team’s bigger players and then try to pass the ball towards the hoop.

Unfortunately this tactic wasn’t enough to defeat the professional bubble football player Manchester City Legends. One of the Dude Perfect players even mentioned it at the end of the game that it’s quite hard to play football with a gigantic ’egg’ on your head let alone win.

Chris Calbero who is an expert in the bubble football area and is also the owner of the Seattle bubble football team; says that you need to pay attention to 4 things in order to be awesome in it. The first and the most important is to forget the way your body moves under normal circumstances. Your are going to be in a 12 kg bubble, which is going to make moving around a bit harder. The other thing to consider is sparing your energy, don’t go too hard in the beginning otherwise you will get tired too soon.

Because this is a totally safe sport, don’t worry about getting hurt, the bubble will propect everyone. Knock the others down, otherwise you will find yourself on the ground. Lastly, if you find yourself on the floor try to get up as soon as possible. It’s not so easy to stand up, the bubble is heavy, so you can even head stand in it.
