From December 15 to 17, 2023, in Krakow FAME SPORT, you will be able to cheer and personally take part in competitions where the main character is a small ball – in Poland often called zośka, but all around the world known as Footbag. Some useful information below!


Footbag is the name of the game that is known all over the world – from China through the USA to Europe. In interwar Poland, it was known as ‘zośka’, it consisted of bouncing with your feet in a circle composed of several people with a small bag or ball of lead with shuttlecocks made of yarn. As an official sport, footbag developed in the USA, from where it reached Europe in 1995.

There are currently two main competitive footbag disciplines:

Footbag Net – playing through the net with a small, hard ball – netbag. You can play only with your feet and the netbag cannot fall to the ground, which makes it quite a technical sport – professionally rich in spectacular attacks and blocks;

Footbag Freestyle – juggling soft footbag with your legs and performing a variety of tricks, where the technique, level of difficulty and the style of their execution count.

and more street disciplines:

Footbag Golf – a sport where precise kicking to the target with various footbags counts, and the winner is the player with the fewest kicks;

2 Squares – a classic game for points played on two squares, where you score a point after hitting a bag into the opponent’s field.

Here you have map with competition & afterparty spots.

Important note about accomodation – we did some research near FAME Sport and marked it on the map. We think best option is to rent rooms/apartments in Old Kazimierz District – very known of hundreds of bars and restaurants and its UNESCO heritage. Just seek for affordable places via or airbnb (Krakow is hardcore touristic city, so you have plenty of options).

If you have any problems with accomodation or super low travel budget – just ask us, we will help you:)

Krakow is a beautiful city where you can spend a lot of time in any way you like. Do you like visiting monuments? In Krakow, you will find the largest medieval market square in Europe, hundreds of churches, zero-class buildings and a cultural park entered on the UNESCO list. You will also find hundreds of restaurants and bars of all kinds in one place, where there is always something happening every day. For those actively relaxing – the surrounding valleys near Krakow, Jordan Park, Błonia, Kościuszko, Krak, Wanda and Piłsudski Mounds or Zakrzówek and Twardowski Rocks – all this will provide you some nature and healthy trip.

The competition itself takes place in the very center of Krakow – near Kazimierz, Podgórze and the Market Square – where you basically have everything in place.
