WHAT EXACTLY IS SWISS BUBBLE FOOTBALL?
We are the very first company in Switzerland to have offered Bubble Football events since 2014, our goal is to bring that incredible experience to everyone in Switzerland. Bubble Football was invented by two funny Norwegians who thought football would be awesome if players were wearing giant plastic bubbles and be able to bump into each other. First game was seen on Norwegian television as a prank, but after being seen on YouTube, it has become a viral video in Europe and the world.

HOW MUCH TIME TAKES A GAME?
With a classic booking (8 to 12 players), you have 60 minutes to experiment this crazy game. A small briefing will take 5 minutes for you to get equipped and learn a few tips and let’s get ready for the whistle! 3 to 4 games of 10 minutes are played with a couple minutes break between each game. When you never tried Bubble Football, it is hard to imagine what a 10 minutes game implies, it is a very intense activity and sometimes even some groups ask us to reduce the time of games to 7-8 minutes because it’s so epic! The photo/video assistant takes pictures during the game and records a film on an action camera. Last 5 minutes are for the group to shoot photo all together and have a beautiful souvenir.
WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR?
Just classic sportswear short or jogging and sneakers. All equipment is on site, giant bubbles, soccer balls, bibs, cones, and kneepads for better comfort.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLAYING INDOOR AND OUTDOOR?
Every surface has its effects! Indoor, you bounce against walls and players. On the grass you roll, and you can easily end up upside down like a turtle on its back, to the mercy of your enemies! On the snow you slide, swoosh in your bubble or slide when you get bumped like a curling puck!
