The one who makes a big mistake on him goes out or there is a general fight.

#FOOTWEAR

Football footwear

If the owner of the ball has no shoes, everyone plays barefoot.  But if he has shoes, he doesn’t care if you have them or not.

#MATCH ORGANISATION

The tournament organizer is always the strongest of the gang and he also acts as a referee.  He is both player and referee at the same time.  The goalkeepers are at the same time the coaches and the team managers.  It is the host team that always has to win the cup, otherwise the tournament ends with a fight.
