Ninh explains, the Rules of Ice Football.
The object of the game is for your team to score more goals than the opposing team.
Ice Football, sometimes referred to as ‘ice soccer’, is a version of association football
that is played on an Olympic sized ice rink. Teams consist of 7 players, with 6 players
taking the ice at any one time. The game starts with a kickoff, where a player
from each team contests for the ball. To score a goal, you must put ball into your
opponent’s goal. For it to count, the whole of the ball must
cross the goal line. In ice football, you are allowed to touch
the ball with every part of your body except your arms.
The main ways to move the ball is to kick the ball to a team mate which is known as
a pass, or run with the ball whilst controlling it
with your feet, known as dribbling. When the ball is in the air, players can head
or chest the ball as well. Teams will usually orchestrate passes and
dribbles so that the ball travels up the ice so that they can score.
The defending team will try and stop you by tackling.
The can intercept passes, block shots or try and kick the ball away from you and move the
ball in the other direction so that they can score themselves.
A defender must be careful here, as if the referee decides that they made contact without
trying to win ball, he can award a foul against them. Fouls usually lead to free kicks.
The game is played in just one period, which varies between 6 and 9 minutes, with the clock
stopping for every stoppage in play. Highest score at the end of time, wins.
If you haven’t already noticed, players wear ice hockey padding to protect themselves.
And just to make running on ice even harder – they’re all wearing bowling shoes.
Yes, that’s right … bowling shoes. You’re kidding me right?
Ummm nope. Germany, the most sensible country in the world created this hybrid ice hockey
/ football sport that lasts under 10 minutes. And then decided to make it harder by making
players wear bowling shoes … with 40lbs worth of armour … on ice.
By the way, there’s a few more things you’ll need to understand before playing or watching
a game. For example. Free kick.
If the ball leaves the rink, the ball is awarded to the team who did not touch it last.
The opposing team will be awarded a free kick from roughly where the ball left the ice.
In the event of a foul, a referee can award a free kick to the team who was fouled.
Substitution. Similar to ice hockey, a team can change players
on the fly. A team cannot change a player if he has already
been sent off. Hand ball
The goalkeeper is the only player who is allowed to handle the ball.
If anyone else happens to touch the ball with an arm, forearm, elbow or hand, the referee
will call ‘hand-ball’, and possession of the ball is awarded to the other team.
If you commit a hand-ball in your own penalty box, the other team will be awarded a penalty
kick. Penalty Kick
If a defender handles the ball in the penalty box, or brings down an attacker with a scoring
change in the box, the referee will award a penalty kick to the other team.
The ball will be placed on the penalty spot and any attacking player can try and score
with one kick against the goalie. If a shot is scored, it counts as a goal.
If the shot is missed it’s a goal kick. Penalty Shootout.
If scores are tied after full time, a penalty shootout will take place.
Team will alternate three penalty kicks each, and the team with the most goals wins. Zorb Football
Not to be outdone by the Germans, the English have their own version of ice football. You’ll
be glad to know, they don’t wear bowling shoes – but instead, they wear a zorb, which
is this inflatable bubble surrounding the player.
Players have to bump their opponents out of the way to try and score goals. Once you get used to the absurdity of the
rules, it’s actually pretty funny to watch. If you have found this video at all helpful,
please like, share and subscribe. It takes me ages to make one of these things
and good karma is always appreciated. If you’re also on Reddit, you can post this
video and discuss it there, but in the meantime, enjoy ice football. Ninh Ly – www.ninh.co.uk – @NinhLyUK

    Why bother to explain the rules of a game that was created for an event held by a game show?
    The same people also made the 'Wok-WM' which was Bobsledding with Asian kitchen utensils.
    I would have also included Autoball (Soccer with cars or basically the real world equivalent of rocket leauge) but as it turns out, we actually invented that before the Autoball event held by the same game show that made Ice Football.
