The Basics of Omegaball

The Field and Rules

There are unique differences between soccer and Omegaball.  Firstly, Omegaball is played on a circular field with a diameter of 175 feet. Secondly, the field features three goals. Three teams of five players  compete at the same time. The offsides rule is not enforced.  This allows players to position themselves anywhere on the field strategically.

The game consists of three 12-minute periods, designed to fit easily into an hour-long television show.  Omegaball Invitational has a deliberately shortened format to result in increased speed of play.   This ensures constant action and excitement for both players and spectators.  There are no throw-ins in Omegaball. Corner kicks are used to restart play when the ball goes out of bounds. Read more about Omegaball.
