How is the Brazilian Footvolley

Footvolley is a sport that was created in 1965, here in Copacabana by a group of friends and combines aspects of beach volleyballΒ and soccer. Due to this combination, Footvolley can be classified as a beach volleyball – but in this activity players are not allowed to use their hands to touch the balls.

This sport has evolved over the years and in 1990 it expanded to other countries. Argentina, England, France and many others countries started adopting this sport. Nowadays the Footvolley competitions are known all over the world.
