I swore I added the idea I created here. But any way's it's a bit later but here's my first concept.
In the year 2046 there is a sport called “Drift Ball”,* a sport where two teams of seven on “Drifters”.** It is the biggest sport across the entire globe, countries hold regional cups and there is a world cup. However the greatest championship lies neither within a single country, nor within the “World Cup”. It lies in the Mega Bowl, where teams are restricted by no nation.
Our story begins when a single man with more money then sense travels the globe. He recruits the best of the best, the players, the best coach, even the best cheerleaders and mascot. This is the story of that team, its players, it’s supporters***, it’s family, friends and fans.
Each team is equipped with Drifters, toughened leather body suits under a set of helmet, gloves and gauntlets, chest piece, crotch guard and grieves. All of this is aerodynamically constructed.
The cheer leaders are well cheerleaders, the mascot is a guy controlling a hologram via motion controls.
The ball is likely to be shaped like a Football (Soccer), it will possibly be equipped with something that allows it to fly much faster even after being thrown or kicked.
It can be picked up, tossed and kicked. It can be carried for a maximum of about fifteen to twenty seconds.
The field come in several forms, some are flat and some have half pipes, ramps and the like. The goal is hovering net with one on each side of the field.
The positions are:
Goal Keeper: They defend the goal and there is one of these per team.
Defenders: There are two of them and they are usually a bit bulkier then the rest. They guard the goal area.
Strikers: There are three of them and they are usually the smallest players and usually women. Their task is to score goals.
The Technology behind the drifters was freely sold and thus there are many brands of Drifters. That same technology on a larger scale is used on cars, bikes and coaches and even bigger still are used for air crafts.
