Leave it to the Scandinavians to come up with something we didn’t know we needed. Now, plenty of you Sunday-leaguers have probably shown up tanked to games, but the likelihood of everyone on the pitch being drunk at the same time is probably pretty slim.
That’s where Norway steps in.
As you can see in the above video produced by Humornieu, the rules of the game required that every player get piss drunk and the goal scorers must have a BAC of .1 or over for their goals to stand. It’s soccer the way it was truly meant to be played by amateurs… right? Naturally, the match itself was filled with sloppy dribbling, poor passing, lax defending and tequila shots. It was an instant classic that these teams, their supporters, and dare I say the whole world, will remember for years to come.
Let this serve as a reminder to everyone that the Norwegians, while not necessarily the best at world football, have given us the greatest types of footy we’ve ever laid eyes on, including, not limited to: electro-shock football, virtual reality bubble football, and 22 pros against 11 amateurs. So thanks, Norway, for making the beautiful game even more beautiful than we thought possible, and thanks to Who Ate All The Pies for finding this gem!
