The Bubble Football World Cup kicks off in the Summer of 2018, just before the real deal in Russia, with a two day event taking place on Saturday the 19th of May and Sunday the 20th of May.
The World Cup (and its precursor England qualifying tournament) have been organised by The Stag Company. It will be the first bubble football competition of its kind in the UK. We are extremely proud to be hosting such an event and hope it will become the showcase competition for the sport.
There will be 16 teams participating in the Bubble Football World Cup 2018, from all around the globe. These teams are national bubble football teams in their respective nations and are sure to bring a heated competitive edge. There may even be some inter-country rivalry! Don’t worry if any fights break out though, because everyone is surrounded by bubbles.
The winning nation of The Bubble Football World Cup will be crowned official World Champions and win the prestigious Bubble Football World Cup Trophy. Whilst the title and trophy go to the winning country, just by participating the other countries are helping to promote this unique and fun new sport.
The Bubble Football World Cup 2018 will take place on Saturday 19th of May and Sunday 20th May. Saturday will consist of group games throughout the morning while the second round, quarter-finals and semi-finals will take place in the afternoon.
Sunday will be the day of the final and all the glamour that it entails! It will all finish with the Bubble Football World Cup trophy presentation.
The host nation for the inaugural World Cup will be England, more specifically at a multi-pitch venue in Shoreditch, London. After the London 2012 Olympics we think the big smoke is now ready for bubble football and all the pressure that brings!
If you are interested in sponsoring the tournament in 2018 then we’d love to hear from you! We have various packages available allowing you to sponsor individual teams or the website – you can find out more about sponsoring our bubble football teams here.
