THE ONLY RULE IS THAT THERE ARE NO RULES
Everybody can play football and the main motivation is scoring goals by moving a found item to an opposing team’s end of the field into a goal area – or not.
The goal can be defended by the opposing team – or not.
Players have to move the ball, or what ever item can be found in the park, by kicking, carrying, or hand-passing the selected item. Players must use only their body to move the item – or not.
The defined area in which to play the game has three different forms. The playing fields resembles a traditional soccer playing field, but are more like an alien form for opening up spontaneous competitions and plays.
