Bubble Football tournament for students
@iMPIVAARAN JALKAPALLOHALLI, ESKONKATU 1
What is it all about?
Bubble Football Tournament for students (YO-turnaus) is an every year tournament organized by Båltsit Osk in Impivaara Football Hall, Turku. The tournament was organized for the first time in 2015 when 17 teams joined the tournament. In 2016, the tournament grew into a 25-team tournament. In 2017 we set a new record on 36 teams which is also a world record when you exclude bubble football tournaments that are pure elimination tournaments "win or go home"- type of tournaments. Although some team compete in the tournament for the win, it is not the most important part. The idea is to offer a sport experience in which every student can participate without any pressure to perform.
Is the tournament suitable for mixed teams and teams consisting of women?
Absolutely! You can join the tournament as a men team, mixed team or women team. This year we have an own tournament for female participants! We divide the teams into groups according to the players name list. We try to put all teams consisting purely of men in the same groups and mixed teams in own group. Womens team play their own tournament.
Do I have to own an own bubble ball to participate?
Absolutely not! We as tournament organizers provide the bubble balls for you during the games. You just need to have sportswear and sneakers. We take care of everything else!
How many players must there be in a team?
There are 5 players on the field at the same time and you can have up to 8 players on your roster for a single game. The roster can be totally changed between the games so you can have as many players you want on a team but for every game, you can name a maximum of 8 players.
What if I don't have enough friends?
Then you can join the DREAMTEAM!
DREAMTEAM is a concept we created for the players who want to join the tournament but don't have enough friends to have their own team. You sign up as a individual player and we will form a team of all the players who signed up as individuals.
