What is Bubble Football?

Bubble football, sometimes known as zorb football, is a team sport similar to 5-a-side football game where two teams compete to score the most goals whilst half-encased inside an inflated bubble suit, similar to a zorb.  The bubble suit is 1.55m high, which completely covers your head and upper body. Your legs are still able to move freely whilst wearing the bubble suit, enabling you to pass the ball and score goals. Smash into the other players in your bubble football suits and bounce them out of the way.

The game is played in large outdoor sport venues with two teams of 5 players on each side with rolling substitutes. Great activity for stag weekends, birthdays, team building and parties.

Bubble Football Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Bubble Football and Zorb Football?

There is no difference between bubble football and zorb football.  Bubble football is the official name of the sport but it's also known as Zorb football or zorball. You may also hear some people call this sport bumper football, which makes sense since you are bouncing and bumping your way around the football pitch!

How to Play Bubble Football

Bubble football is a simple concept - Much like a regular game of 5-a-side football, the aim is to score as many goals as you can in the opposing team’s net… except for the fact that you’ll be wrapped up in a giant inflatable bubble suit! There aren’t any set positions on the pitch like there are in football either but making sure that you’re both attacking and defending for your team is key. During the session, you’ll also get the chance to play some brilliant mini-games to break things up a bit.

What to Wear for Bubble Football?

We suggest you bring sportswear like tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Football boots or blades are not allowed for the safety of others taking part. As most of the venues are outdoors, remember to bring a coat or waterproof. Even if you feel like a human bubble you will want to ensure you are dressed correctly.

Is Zorb Football a Good Activity for a Stag Do?

Many of our bookings of zorb football are stag parties or groups of men who love active sport. Not for the fair-hearted these football bubbles will certainly get you in the mood for a few drinks on the stag night. Check out some hilarious bubble football videos so you know what you're getting into.

What Bubble Football Equipment is Used?

The equipment we use for bubble soccer is 10 inflatable bubble suits, a set of goals, a football and a referee to keep everything running smoothly!

When was Bubble Football invented?

Bubble football first originated in Scandinavia. It first appeared on the TV show Golden Goal by Norwegians Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden. The popularity excelled in the UK and is especially popular with stag parties and groups of football lovers. Although you may feel like you are an extremely skilled footballer, playing football in bubbles is a lot harder than it looks! UK bubble football events are run in the 1000s across the whole country.

How do you get in a Zorb Ball?

After it's been inflated, you simply lay the bubble suit on the ground, climb in and put your arms through the straps provided.  Then move so you are on your knees and stand up.  At first, it feels strange but your body will adjust to the extra weight and balance itself.
