Modern Gladiators – Calicio Storico

Calcio Storico is not a game for the faint of heart. A tradition in Firenze, Italy, this game pits four teams of the most ferocious man beasts in the town against each other in a weird mix of rugby, boxing, MMA and Greco Roman wrestling where the violence surpasses that of any hockey match.

Only the toughest make it and every scored point elicits elation like no other.
