 +  - and the **Long Kicking Contest** which is based purely on distance.
 +The game takes place in a fictional world league, with teams representing Australia, England, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, the USA, and Vietnam. Each team has their own home ground, with its own fantastic design. The Italian ground looks like the coliseum, the USA like skyscrapers,​ etc.
