This is the official meetup page of Bubble Soccer NYC (http://www.bubbleballsoccernyc.com)

More fun than soccer, safer than football, cheaper than hockey, and bouncier than basketball. BubbleBall guarantees to make you spin, bounce and laugh like no other sport in history! 


What is Bubble Ball Soccer?

Bubble soccer (also known as “Boblefotball” "bubble football" "bumperz" and "bubble ball") is the brainchild of Henrik Elvestad and Johan Goldenfirst. The first game appeared on Golden Goal, a Norwegian TV show, in 2011. Since then it has rapidly spread like wildfire throughout the world and finally, Bubble Ball Soccer has landed in NYC (the tri-state area). 

To play, teams of up to ten players don typical soccer/sports clothing and put their giant bubble ball suits (loosely described as giant, inflatable hamster balls) on top. Each suit is very safe and is designed for any type of weather or outdoor arena.They have a built in backpack style harness so you can strap the balls on, and handles to allow for pain free spills, hard tackling, bumping, knocking, bouncing and rolling.

Don't worry though, you won't get a yellow card for this type of behavior. Bubble ball soccer is a full contact sport and there are no tackling fouls to be heard of. Roughhousing is actually encouraged and what makes bubble ball soccer so much fun! The balls will absorb the tackle and do what it does best, bounce back and bring you to your feet without causing you any harm, pain or injury!

So, what are the actual rules? Simple - keep the balls in bounds and score! This is a lot harder than it looks (actually it doesn't look easy at all) and as a result most games end up with only a few goals. Despite this fact, it's still a very entertaining game to watch and even more fun to play. Expect to burn up to 1000 calories, sweat, laugh, get some aggression out and experience withdrawal symptoms until your next round!
