Some of you, like me, may have never heard of Jorkyball. Well, get ready, because I’m about to tell you about it.
It was invented in Europe in the late 1980s. It’s a two-person-to-a-side football (soccer) game played in a 10-meter x 5-meter court surrounded by 3-meter high walls. And it may be a great revenue generator for your venue.
“Jorkyball can be played in any indoor sport or leisure space and offers a unique new way for venues to increase revenues and attract new customers,” PanStadia & Arena Management magazine reported. “It can also be used as part of a fan engagement program for cities hosting major sporting events.”
The Jorkyball International Federation World Competitions are set for May. Keep an eye out on this sport, as it’s starting to gain traction around the world, and due to its playing field size it’s something that I think a lot of venues could include in their floor plans.
