A football game of three halves in Spain

It’s a well-worn football cliche but the phrase ‘it’s a game of two halves’ could soon be a thing of the past after a Spanish team demonstrated a new form of the beautiful game.

Three-sided football, which uses a hexagonal pitch, has been demonstrated by players from Athletic de Bilbao in Getxo.

The rules are much the same as the more conventional version of the sport, except there are three nets, with the winner being the team who concedes the fewest goals.

A major difference is the cooperation of rival teams, a feature created by Danish creator Asger Jorn to do away with the ‘them and us’ mentality that football currently fosters.
