Unless I Am With Steve,

I never, ever, watch football, or any other sports as it happens,

I find them all totally boring and mind numbing, as did these lads when watching a boring game in the World Cup, so they decided to liven the game up a tad, as they live in the Austrian Alps flat ground is very hard to find, flat ground is most often used for more important things than playing football, so they reasoned why not play on a hill? great idea, “We were watching the games and found them very boring,” alpine football co-inventor Franz Mair said “Then, Peppi – Peppi Kn├╝nz, the other inventor of the sport – said to me: ‘The way they play isn’t hard enough and they should try running up and down our mountains. They’d soon be out of breath…’ And then we thought: ‘They might not even be able to play – but us and our lads, we’d manage it!'”

the video is an advertisement for Mercedes Benz, forgetting that the game looks like a real laugh!

“Anyone can play on flat pitches,” says Alois Gantner, trainer of the ‘Supa Burschis’ team, “In Montafon, we only play on the steepest slopes we can find.” the rules of extreme alpine football are the same as for the regular version, with the only difference being the need for strong legs and great stamina to fight against gravity on the uneven field, as it happens it looks like so much fun I think that even I could watch a game!
