Malaysian Football??


I heard of Ring Football and Normal Football but never came across this type of football and this was for the very first time that I was going to witness it.

End number of questions rose in my mind regarding this game but I had no one at that time to answer it. Strange thing of this event was – it started at the end and winded up first. 😉

As I came across the Faculty heads organizing the particular event, I met Prof. Kedar Paranjape who was the event head of Malaysian football. He was the one who gave me a clear idea about what Malaysian football is all about. It is a mixture of volleyball and football. It is an Indonesian game and is supposed to be played by foot, chest, head and the ball should not be missed. The players are allowed 3 passes within their team members but after that they have to pass the ball to their opponents. The number of members in one particular team is 6+2. The main rule of this game is that the players are not allowed to use their hands between the games and if they use it they are disqualified.  The game seemed was really very interesting and I was looking forward for it. As it was a new game for the players there wasn’t a great turn up but still there were 4 teams that participated but the best part of one of the teams from Ruparel College was they participated with only 4 players in their team and challenged Joshi Bedekar college in the finals. It was a match worth watching. The Ruparel’s were leading the match but then the Joshi Bedekar’s took the lead and the ball was in their court now. And it was a match that showed the true sportsmanship and taught us that “No matter what, if we are willing to do it, we can do it”.

Though they didn’t win but in competitions participating is something which matters. Losing or winning is the secondary part of it. So as we saw Malaysian football taught us many things without its intention of teaching us. When interviewing both the teams I got to know something in common from both of them and that was that they played the game only for one sole reason and that was fun fun and fun and they actually had loads of fun while playing.

The winning teams captain Akash Indulkar said that they have experienced playing the game before and they call it as ”Footvolley” and they practice it on regular basis. While asking them about their strategy about the game and they told me that it was purely on the basis of practice done before that made them win this game. Asking them about their opponents Brandian D’souza one of the team members answered that they had an advantage as they had only 4 members and lesser the members more better the game can be. Well I don’t know what’s better for  the  game. I leave it upon you people to decide.
