Summary:A fast-paced version of American football played indoors, played in reduced gravity to emphasize flashy acrobatics and frantic action.
Teams/Players: Teams of 11 in play, though up to 45 may be kept off the field. Both male and female athletes may participate.
Uniforms/Equipment: Uniforms: Helmet and guards similar to American football but significantly lighter and more colorful, a hybrid football kit and competitive dance uniform. Equipment: A smaller court than American football, about 40 yards long with tighter yard lines (three yards instead of five). Football, which traditionally is chromed for better visibility.
Rules/Play: Rules are sketchy, however Arena Football/Jumpball seems to be similar to American football in play, with a few minor variations: the court is about 1/3 smaller to make the game more exciting (though not to ruin the magic too much, this was a directorial decision to make the set more filmable.) Gravity is reduced and/or participants are given jump-enhancing technology; overall these changes lead to a game which is more acrobatic and less reliant on body mass. It appears that points are scored on touchdowns only, not on throws.
