Icelandic Mud Football Is Just Like Soccer, But Dirtier And With Fewer Rules

Apr 30, 2015 By Madeleine Brown
If you've ever played outdoor sports, especially on any kind of field, then you know how difficult it can be to move properly while playing in the rain. Aside from the slippery aspect, one of the biggest issues faced when playing in a wet environment is ending up covered in mud.

While most people would likely agree that playing in dry conditions is the preferred way to go, there are some people in Iceland who would beg to differ. Meet the Icelandic Mud Football players, a group of gutsy football (or soccer) enthusiasts who choose to play in a foot of mud.

Slipping and sliding all over the place, you would imagine that the typical contact-related rules of the sport would need to be a little more lax, with players falling face-first into the mud left and right. While it might seem a little horrifying to finish a game absolutely caked in mud, you have to commend them on the adventurous spin they've put on the game.
