In 2014 Tiverton Balloon & Music Festival approached Wacky Nation to create an event that would be suitable for children and adults to play together and which would inspire attendees.


Research indicated that the FIFA Football World Cup finals would be held on the same weekend as the Tiverton Balloon & Music Festival, so the team decided to create an activity that would link these two great events together.

The Alternative Football World Cup was played with a giant inflatable football on a normal size 5 aside pitch, with teams selecting countries from the FIFA tournament to represent.


Throughout the three days of the festival the activity was in constant use with mixed teams of all ages playing with and against each other.
