Hello everyone, I’m sure you guys know what is soccer but have you heard of Bubble Soccer? That’s right! It is a unique and fun version of the original soccer game whereby players will now be wearing bubble suits and be playing Bubble Soccer at the same time. As it is a relatively new game in Singapore, I’m sure many of you have no idea what it is and have formed many misconceptions about this game. Therefore, I am here today to enlighten you guys about Bubble Soccer!
Misconception 1: Similar to traditional soccer, Bubble Soccer requires a min of 22 players
Unlike soccer, Bubble Soccer does not require 11 players per team on the field to begin the game. The minimum number of players required is only 5 per team, per side! So you don’t have to find 10 other friends or colleagues to take part in this exciting game, simply find 4 other friends can participate in Bubble Soccer right now!
Misconception 2: Bubble Soccer needs to be conducted on a full-size soccer pitch
Can you imagine 10 players wearing balloon suits and running around the football field? It would be quite disastrous. Bubble Soccer does not require a full-size soccer field to at all. Bubble Soccer only requires a small amount of space. For example, it can be held at either the Cage at Kallang or Kovan Sports Centre. These 2 locations are perfect as they are fully sheltered and you wouldn’t have to worry about whether it will rain or not. Furthermore, the activity can also be held at any open spaces such as Sentosa or even a school’s sports hall. There are simply no restrictions!
Misconception 3: Bubble Soccer is dangerous
Are bubbles dangerous? Then how can the game be dangerous at all? The bubble suits are filled with air and have been constantly well taken care of. Even if your friends bumped you, the bubble will be able to protect you from the fall. Likewise when you are going around bumping your friends. On top of that, there will also be professionally trained facilitators, who underwent intense training and certification program, to supervise the entire activity. With such top-notch equipment coupled with facilitators who have tons of experience, Bubble Soccer is an extremely safe game for people of all age.
Misconception 4: It is extremely hot inside the bubble
This is true to a certain extent as it is hot because you are constantly running around and bumping people. However, the bubbles have 2 large holes, which allows the cooling air to flow in while allowing the heat to flow out. In addition, if the game is held at our partner’s venues, they are fully sheltered and even have big ass fans that help to cool you down as well. Furthermore, a usual game will only last about 5mins.
Misconception 5: Bubble Soccer must be played at an outdoor venue
Bubble Soccer can be played almost anywhere! It doesn’t have to be outdoor! It can be conducted in indoor places such as a sports hall or a multi-purpose hall as well. This doesn’t only apply to Bubble Soccer; it is also applicable to other team building activities such as Combat Archery, Laser Tag as well.
Misconception 6: There are no official rules and referees for Bubble Soccer
Fortunately, there are still rules that players have to abide with in order to make the game safe and fun. At the start of the gameplay, the facilitators will give a quick safety briefing to the participants, which will inform them about the dos and don’ts. Anyone who is caught breaking the rules will be temporarily banned from playing the game. So would you guys like to guess who is then the referees? That’s right, they are the Game Facilitators!
Misconception 7: Bubble Soccer is a 90mins game
As much as we would love to let you guys play Bubble Soccer for 90mins, it would be too tiring for you. As such, the session will be divided into 3 different game modes, each with a different objective for you guys to work on. Each game mode would last for about 5mins followed by a 5mins break so that you guys will be able to catch a break.
Misconception 8: Bubble Soccer cannot be played on a rainy day
This is true only if u choose to play the game at an outdoor venue. Our recommended venues are fully sheltered. As such, you will never have to worry about the bad weather. Rain or shine, you will still be able to continue to enjoy a game of Bubble Soccer.
Misconception 9: Soccer Rules applies to Bubble Soccer
Although the name Bubble Soccer may suggest that the rules applied in soccer are applied to it, it is absolutely not the case. Certain rules such as the offside rules are not relevant to the game at all. Bubble Soccer has its own unique set of rules as well which is that both sides have to start from their goal post and run to the middle in order to get the first ball. It is through such differing rules, which makes Bubble Soccer that unique and interesting. Remember! Bubble Soccer is about getting bumped and not about your soccer skills!
Misconception 10: The bubble suits are heavy
No need to fear at all! We made our Bubble Suits with light plastic which can be easily carried around. Furthermore, there are 2 different types of bubble suits – 1 specifically made for adults and another specifically made for kids. This is to ensure that both kids and adults are able to handle the weight of the bubble suits!
After all these clarifications, I hope that you guys will better understand the game and forget about all those nonsensical misconceptions that you have for Bubble Soccer. So what are u waiting for, contact us now and book your Bubble Bump session!
