What do you mean by World Cup Balloon?
It’s an idea of Ibai Llanos and other streamers — people who stream games or other content on platforms like Twitch — after a video went viral with people playing with a balloon (or balloon, depending on your region) inside a room.

And the game is just that: In a “field” that simulates a room in a house – with a sofa, plant pots and even a playground – two players, one against the other, must hit the balloon to keep it from touching the ground. Hit one by one.
A good player can not only prevent the balloon from falling, but also make it difficult for the opponent to defend.

There is a rule to check plays. For example, slaps on a balloon should always be halfway up the bladder, to prevent the object from falling intentionally or unintentionally.
It’s a two minute leave. In the event of a tie, there is extra time with a “golden balloon” – whoever scores the win – and the rule is not to use your hands for that extra time.
