What happens if to combine the swamp and the world’s most popular sport? A dirty, muddy, filthy, soaking wet alternative of football is born. Those who were at Augustow Canal last weekend were lucky to be a part of it or watch others having fun instead.
Mud was flying and people laughing at a swamp football tournament competition as part of the Sea Festival. The festival has a long history, it was first held more than a hundred years ago.
Since then a lot has changed but some things never change – mud-caked footballers playing, excitement, and happy faces all around. Take a look at one of the dirtiest football matches you’ve ever seen.
