Straw Football (Straw Soccer)

In summer 2018 Russia will host the World Football Championship. One creative farmer from Stavropol region Roman Ponomarev has built a stadium out of pallets of straw in five days and founded the Straw Football League.

During the summer this stadium held football games of the World Straw Football Championship for the teams of surrounding villages. Russian football causes a legitimate anger of its fans because of a low quality of the game and enormous amounts of money paid to the players. In the Straw Football League on the contrary inspires by its low investment and high humor – building of the stadium took only 41 thousand roubles or $683.

At times the heat on the stadium needed to be cooled down and the water cannons took their part in the game.
