Royal football, the annual festive ball game in Britain
Royal Shrovetide Football Match - an annual celebratory ball game that is played exclusively in Ashbourne (England). The game resembles rugby, but the game is played by thousands of people simultaneously. Citizens are divided into two teams: living north of the river, are automatically considered "northerners", to the south - "southerners". Restrictions on the number of players - no. The role of the gates have two mills, located in different parts of the city, and the field for the game is the entire city. So knowledgeable people avoid leaving their cars on the street, while there is a game, and shop owners prefer to arrange a holiday.
