Football, the world’s most popular sport, may soon take a remarkable turn as a match is being planned to be played on the moon. Scientists believe that by 2035, it could be possible to play football on the lunar surface, creating a unique experience unlike any other match played on Earth.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) experts have proposed an intriguing project for a football match on the moon. According to their plan, each team will consist of five players, and the game will be played in four quarters of 10 minutes each. Players will have a 20-minute break between quarters.

In this lunar match, players will not wear traditional uniforms but will don heavy-duty space suits with built-in cooling systems. Instead of human referees, hologram referees will be positioned on the pitch, providing close-up views and displaying virtual red and yellow flags.

Safety is a top priority, and the match duration is planned to be halved to ensure the well-being of the players in the lunar conditions. The 20-minute break will allow the teams to rehydrate and maintain the equipment.
