Blind Soccer… 2011
The Blind Soccer (or Football, depending on your nation) season is underway, and I went to see matches in the Kanto League yesterday. Above, a Nogizaka Knights player scores against Buen Cambio. For those unfamiliar with blind football, all players are blind and blindfolded (in case partially sighted) and played, 5-a-side, on a futsal pitch. In the above clip you can hear the "caller" behind the goal giving the striker the sound to aim at. It's a fast moving and thrilling sport to watch.
