Gaelic Football can be described as a mixture of soccer and rugby, although it predates both. Australian Rules football is said to have evolved from Gaelic football.

The sport is played on a field approximately 137m long and 82m wide. The goalposts are the same shape as in rugby, with the crossbar lower than rugby and slightly higher than soccer. There are fifteen players per side. The ball is round and slightly smaller than a soccer ball. It can be carried in the hand for a distance of four steps and can be kicked or "hand-passed", a striking motion with the hand or fist. After every four steps the ball must be either bounced or "solo-ed," an action of dropping the ball onto the foot and kicking it back into the hand. You may not bounce the ball twice in a row. To score, you put the ball over the crossbar by foot or hand/fist for one point or under the crossbar and into the net by foot or the hand/fist in certain circumstances for a goal, the latter being the equivalent of three points.
