You are a die-hard fan of a sport and you can go to extreme levels for it. But, what if your favorite sport steps out of the box?


Kicking The Ball While Floating
Singapore has given all football enthusiasts a floating surprise in the form of Marina Bay Floating Platform. This mammoth floating pitch is also known as The Float@Marina Bay. Located on the chilled waters of Marina Reservoir, it is a 100% steel fabricated platform measuring 120 by 83 metres or 394 by 272 ft.
The floating pitch of singapore is approximately 5% larger than the National Stadium soccer ground. This ground is proficient in holding 9,000 people, and the stadium gallery can accommodate 30,000 football lovers.

The credit of starting the pulsating adventure of winter tourism and winter sports goes to St. Moritz. The famous frozen lake of St. Moritz turned out to be the most unwonted ground to play polo back in 1985. From past 33 years,St. Moritz is the capital of polo and organises the astounding snow polo tournament where teams from round the globe compete for the prestigious Cartier Trophy. The Snow Polo World Cup is a three days tournament in the snow-crowned mountains of Engadin Valley.

Tamnougalt village, near Agdz, Morocco was just like any other small, lesser known village until it discovered a football pitch. This soccer ground is famously known as Desert Pitch. With a measure of 50 by 80 metres it is a desert-heart football ground that organises almost all the major games of Agdz city football clubs.
Though its sandy surface and fretful African heat makes the ground a harsh floor for the players, playing on a desert is an adventure of high extent.

Unlike the usual polo match, a beach polo consists of two three-player teams. In the year 2004, Dubai's Rashid Al Habtoor and Sam Katiela created an off-beat style of playing polo which emanated the 2005 Miami Beach Polo World Cup. Though it's polo, some factors related to it slightly differs from the classic approach, like, in place of the normal hard plastic ball, beach polo is played using a leather or rubber ball of 12.5 inches circumference.
