Competitive Football Could Start On the Moon By 2035
A group of scientists and engineers from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (“IET”) have created a Lunar Football Rule Book, the first of its kind. This rule book explains how football can be played on the Moon. Scientists believe that football could be played on the Moon as early as 2035, even if it might look very different from a match here on Earth. According to this rule book, each team will have five players, a small pitch, a 50% bigger football, and no contact during the game.

The game will be played in four 10-minute quarters, with 20-minute breaks between each to give players a rest. Headers and side tackles will not be allowed. The players will have to wear a special and flexible airtight suit with a helmet. The suit will have inbuilt padding for knees and elbows, along with a cooling and heating system to cope with the lunar climate. The IET has also launched a competition asking children (aged 4-7 and 8-13 years) to design a football kit for the Lunar Football team. Two designs will be chosen from the submitted entries.
To enter the competition, designs can be drawn onto our entry form or paper and submitted to email@example.com by September 15, 2023.
