French Week Three Sided Soccer

Uptown Campus
LBC Quad
LBC Quad, New Orleans, Louisiana, LBC Quad, New Orleans, Louisiana

As part of the French Week, the French Department organizes the (probably) very first three sided soccer game of Tulane history, on Thursday, November 4th.

“Three sided soccer, what is that?”, you may ask. Well, the name says it all: it is soccer, but with 3 teams playing all against each other at the same time, with one ball, and on a three goals field. Created by the Danish situationist painter Asger Jorn, it intends to “deconstruct the spectacular bipolarity structure of conventional soccer”, encouraging teams to negotiate, ally, cooperate… and betray each other, all of this while playing! In other words, if you don’t have the pace and skills of an Mbappé, you might offset with the Machiavellian strategic view of a Napoléon.

All students and faculties of Tulane, regardless of department, physical condition, soccer or French skills, are welcomed to join us on 11/4, anytime from 12:30 to 2pm at the LBC Quad!
