Fullball - a new type of football

Fullball is a sport created by Soheil Salimipour from Iran in 2019. Fullball is a team sport, a type of new football combining elements of football and volleyball. It can be played on grass, indoor and at the beach.

What does the term fullball mean? It is actually composed of two words, full and ball. The  reason behind using the word full is that, in addition of using feet, you are allowed to use your hands too. The message of this sport is diversity, culture and peace, as well as the reduction of injuries.

Equipment Required: ball, a grass football field that needs to be modified (it also can be played indoor or on the beach)


1.  Footvolley: (Football + Volleyball) Footvolley is derived from volleyball and football. Fullball is completely the opposite of footvolley because footvolley is played on a volleyball court, but with  football rules, with legs and feet, and no hands are involved. But fullball is played in football court, and in addition to legs and feet, hands are used in performing the game, especially when scoring.

2.  Rugby: A group-sport which is a type of football, and the reason that the new sport fullball is compared to rugby is due to their similarities.
