Swamp Soccer World Championships in Edinburgh

If you sometimes feel nostalgic for football’s past when teams spent much of the season knee deep in mud then this Serviced City Pads blog may be of great interest to you. These days a bad pitch is a rarity at the highest levels of the game – just look at the beautiful playing surface at Arsenal’s Emirates stadium. The development of playing surfaces has undoubtedly led to a much more aesthetically pleasing style of football and has been good for the game.

However, that’s not to say that that there isn’t a lot of fun to be had from watching two teams battle it out in more adverse playing conditions, and this is exactly what you will find at the Swamp Soccer World Championships which will be taking place in Edinburgh this year from the 25th – 26th June 2011. A swamp soccer match lasts for 24 minutes and has 6 players on each team. You can find out more about the tournament by visiting their official site.

Perhaps you and your friends will be attending the event; you may even be challenging for glory yourself. Dare you take on the mighty Real Mudrid or Swampdoria?
