In 1964, Danish artist Asger Jorn published "The Application of the Triolectical Method in General Situology," a philosophical tract that rebuked prevailing dialectics. Nobody knew what the hell he was talking about, so he invented three-sided football to illustrate.

The game, as shown in this kinda-inscrutable but nevertheless interesting clip, is still very much alive today, even though it is almost entirely unknown compared to bourgeois two-team football.

By promoting tertiary systems over binary ones, Jorn sought to replace confrontation with collaboration. But hearing three-sided football players talking about the game, it pretty much sounds like soccer with a juicy side of betrayal. [NotCot]

3 sided football is nothing new.

It already exists.
