Bubble Soccer Events

Sumo wrestling while playing soccer!

Tokyo Gaijins organize public pick-up bubble soccer games as well as private events (for companies, schools and other groups) in central Tokyo.

Bubble soccer is something very different than your usual sport and any group of people would enjoy it very much. You don't really need to be into sports to even play, it's just totally for fun!

Two teams of 5-6 players try to score goals against each other like in soccer but while wearing a giant bubble suit. The ball is placed in the middle of the court and when the whistle blows, everyone runs at each other and all inflatable hell breaks loose.

Usually players run around just trying to knock each other over. Most of the time, games tend to turn into sumo wrestling. The main goal is for everyone to have fun so if people want to just sumo wrestle or play last man standing that's totally fine.

Games are usually played on a futsal court or small pitch, and all of the equipment is prepared beforehand. Matches last only seven minutes but it's a surprisingly tough workout. Bubbles weigh around 14 kgs and getting up from the floor only using your legs (after being knocked upside down) is very exhausting. Not to mention how much your sides ache from laughing.

Come join the fun!
