PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND, CANADA (CBC/CNN) - The World Cup is being played in Brazil, but in Canada, kids got to try their hand at bubble soccer.

Bubble soccer players are encased in huge inflatable plastic bubbles.

Business owner Jason Wall said players can knock each other to the ground, but no one gets hurt.

"It's kind of like a combination of football and soccer, full contact. The only rule is you can't hit anybody when they're down, and if you can stop laughing long enough, try to put the ball in the net," Wall said.

Wall wants to start a league on Prince Edward Island later this year.
