Bog football, or “Swamp Soccer”

We can thank the BBC for pointing this one out: but the report was in the Scotsman’s News briefs

MORE than 1,500 football fans took part in Scotland’s second ‘Swamp Soccer’ tournament in Dunoon yesterday.

The six-aside tournament saw teams knee-deep in mud attempting to play a game of football.

The craze has already swept Sweden, Iceland, Holland, Russia and Brazil.

Forty-eight teams of mud-loving men and women – more than twice last year’s number – took part in the competition.

Stewart Miller, founder of the Scottish event, said: “It’s one of the few outdoor sporting events where the bad weather actually makes the conditions better.”

The finals are held today.
