An event Sunday at the Missouri Athletic Center, 2900 Forum Blvd., will feature players attempting to play soccer while inside plastic bubbles that surround everything but their legs and feet.
The bubble soccer tournament from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. is a fundraiser for the Day Dreams Foundation. The local not-for-profit organization aims to remove financial barriers for children wanting to participate in extracurricular activities.
Joe Bradley, founder and president, said the bubble soccer idea was pitched at a board meeting and the board was sold on the idea after watching videos of bubble soccer games.
He said there are bubble soccer leagues in Kansas City and St. Louis.
“It’s not something that’s been done in Columbia, yet,” Bradley said.
