Calcio Storico Is the Most Brutal Sport On Earth And Here’s Why

Calcio Storico is without a doubt the most brutal sport on earth. Its name comes from Italian and means Historic Football.

However, it is nothing like the football you know. Teams consist of 27 players each and although it’s a sport, it mostly resembles a brawl. Everything is allowed except sucker-punches and kicks to the head. This means that punches, tackles and choke holds  are a standard for every match. It takes place in Italy and is only for those who are well trained and ready to get literally bloody hurt. It is truly a violent sport.

Here are some of the best photos to give you a better idea. Which of you fellow lazy penguins would like to participate?
