That Was Then ... This is Now

“Sport of the future”

How We Got Here. 2014 - 2023

Founding Vision

Bubbleball Inc. is founded by Mahdad Taheri as the 2014 FIFA World Cup approaches to capitalize on media attention and early equipment distribution of bubbleballs around the world.

User generated videos produce tens of millions of impressions and sales of product validate interest in the activity. 

April 2014

Founding Team

Taheri puts the bubbleball idea into Blue Sky Labs, his innovation lab within his New York design agency, TVI.

The young team hustles to satisfy demand, rapidly prototype and set the long term vision. While overseeing client projects Bubbleball Inc. is spun off on April 15, 2014. 

April 2014

Thesis Studies

Taheri's Master's dissertation at NYU, "Critical Success Factors for Creating the Next Major American League Sport", shapes the company's long term roadmap as it attempts to evolve a nascent kids game into an athletic sport.

Dec 2014

Equipment Distribution

The company focuses on equipment distribution via sales, rentals and 65 licensed operators around the country as it continues research and development of the sports idea.

Aug 2017

BubbleBall rebrands to the BBA

The Bubbleball Business Association continues to focus on safety, long term vision and diligent operations to ensure rental operations, camps, schools and universities around the country operate safely.

BBA bubbleball differentiates from early game play. "Shoot for the moon. Land on the stars. Play to create." becomes the company's aspirational vision, embedded in its game rules and BBA logo.

Aug 2017

Game Rules Development

Game mechanics of other sports are broken down and BBA bubbleball is designed ground up. New York weather prevents play testing and development, spurring the move of the company to California.

Intention: Many sports are quite serious. While we believe competition is necessary to challenge athletes, joy and “playing to create” is the intention of the BBA. Delivering it is our promise.

Depth: Game rules incorporate mechanics of soccer, flag football, and rugby, and draw players from these backgrounds and different skill sets to participate.

Connection: As people move more often, breaking ties and local identities, they still maintain their values. Divisions of the BBA league are themed around universal human values vs geographic regions. Team identities are aligned within each division, and members play to create opportunities and awareness around the team’s causes, allowing fans from anywhere in the world to feel a deeper sense of connection and purpose as they watch games.

Balance: Scoring and periods structures are designed to balance teams and create entertaining match ups and keep fans watching until the end, preventing runaway games by better teams.

Safety: While still providing the excitement of contact sports, the bubbleball reduces risk of injury and concussions prevalent in other contacts sports.

Reach: Game rules are being designed with the vision of integration of technology that allows fans at home to be live digital players and able to control the game outcome – not just to be a spectator, but a participant in games. A single match could potentially be watched and played by millions of people.

The BBA is owned by its Founder/CEO, Mahdad Taheri, private investors, advisors and employees.

The BBA is funded by private investors, community sponsors and individual member contributions.

Revenues from equipment sales, licensing, rentals also support operations while the company builds its longer terms sponsorship, broadcasting, digital media, ticketing and merchandising revenue streams.
