Soccer? Nope, MotoBall!

MotoBall - Motorcycle Soccer
MotoBall - Motorcycle Soccer
The Euro 2008 soccer finals have ended last weekend, and if there was ever a boring sport (apart from F1, checkers and snail racing), it's football (the European word for soccer). So, let's liven it up a tad.

How about instead of football players running around to kick the ball, we give them a motorcycle? That'll make life a bit more interesting. Now, it's called MotoBall!

"Invented" in the 1930's in France, there are now even national leagues playing the game in several European countries (Dutch: link, German: link, France: link, Russia: link, ). There are 4 players (and 1 goalie) who ride a 250 cc motorcycle except the goalkeeper (who is on foot... brave man).

The rules are more or less the same as soccer, except that the playtime is 4 x 20 minutes, and you are not allowed to ride inside the 5.5 meter zone of the goal.

Now, if the Euro soccer final between Germany and Spain could have been played on motorcycles, I would have watched....But there is a Euro 2008 version for MotoBall. It's held 7 - 12 August in the South of France. Click here for more info Open link in a new window.

Here's a quick video to give you an impression:
