FUβBALL

  • This is played between 2 teams, each consisting of 11 players. At each end of the field there are goal-posts that are guarded from the opposing team by keepers who may use both hands and arms during game-play. The other positions are not allowed to use hands or arms but are allowed to use all other body parts. Traditionally the ball is kicked, but it can also be passed using your head!
