Soccer got a 21st-century update over the weekend at the final match of the Portuguese Cup. The game ball was delivered to the field by a guy riding an Omni hoverboard — which is, unlike its Swagway peers of the same name, a true hoverboard, capable of short flights. It’s unclear why, exactly, the ball needed to be brought to the players through the air — but, hey, it looked cool. And that’s what really matters in sports, right?

What a time to be alive.

In the Future, Soccer Games Will Kick Off With Hoverboards
