History of Footvolley

Footvolley was created in Brazil, by Octavio de Moraes, in 1965in Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach as a means for football players to be able to touch the ball without violating the formal football ban at thetime. Players would bring a football; but opt for the volleyball courts when the police would come ask for their ball. The game of footvolley - first called 'pevoley', literally meaning "footvolley", that was discarded for "futevôlei".
Footvolley started in Rio de Janeiro; however cities like Recife, Salvador, Brasília, Goiânia, Santos and Florianópolishave players who have been playing footvolley since the 1970s.

Teams of footvolley had five a side initially. Due to the skill level of the then footvolley athletes (nearly all were professional football players); the ball would rarely drop. Thus, the players began lowering the number of players on each side, eventually settling on 2 versus 2, which is still in use today.

In recent years, professional football players Havetaken up footvolley in both promotional events and celebrity matches. Some notable Brazilian footballers who have played (or still play) footvolley are: Romário, Edmundo, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Júnior, and Edinho (1982 & 1986 National Team).
