Advertising? Hungerball aka HungerBall is a new way of playing traditional team-based ball sports, where individual competitors (rather than teams) take on each other, all-on-all. Hungerball started with all-on-all football/soccer which happens in an inflatable enclosure with six goals for six players, each defending own goal and attacking against the other five, one ball, no hands, one winner - the last one standing. Hungerball all-on-all football can be played recreationally, for skills training, or competitions with individual winners. Other ways to play include three teams of two or two teams of three going against each other (players still retain one goal each but they attack and defend together).
