A Prince Edward Island company is introducing Islanders to a new twist to the world’s most popular sport.

Players got the chance to try out bubble soccer in Charlottetown on Saturday, part of a fundraiser for KidSport PEI.

Players largely follow the rules of soccer, except they are encased from the knee up in an inflatable plastic bubble. This allows players to knock each other to the ground.

It’s funny to watch, but aficionados say it’s also a good workout for players.

An Island company, Bent Elements, wants to start a league on the Island in the fall.
