What is Tritball? Tritball is a 3-Sided Soccer sport (3SF). A 3SF match is like traditional soccer, however, three teams play on a hexagonal soccer pitch (field) at one time. Each team has to defend a single goal against two teams with one ball. The team that concedes the least amount of goals at the end of the match wins. 3SF introduces a philosophical aspect to the traditional soccer match, that teams have to temporarily build alliances within a single match to unseat the current score leader to gain advantages.

In 1993 Three-Sided Football players gathered to play in what is believed to be the very first match in Glasgow, Scotland. This was an experimental game based off the intriguing arguments by a Danish situationist, Asger Jorn, about a three sided sport to explain triolectics. Clubs from Wetumpka, the UK, Germany, and Finland will attempt to start a three-sided match at the exact time to mark this 25th anniversary of the first game.

This is a single day event that is just for fun. Teams will comprise of 5+ players. Matches will last between 45-60 minutes of playing time (60-75 minutes including breaks). Teams will be co-ed unless enough players register. More information will be provided at a later time so please include a good e-mail address that is checked on a daily basis.

Registration for this event will close at midnight on May 13th, 2018.
