Bubble Football was invented by a guy named Lee Moseley, 30, who worked as asbestos surveyor. He left his job to follow his passion. At the beginning of the game at first it seems to be a bit apprehensive. However, as the game progresses the players and the bubble-soccer fans become captivated by this fun packed game and at times the game can go on for hours and hours.
