A one-of-a-kind world record football game just took place and it featured a global legend.

A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the ‘Highest Altitude Game of Football (Soccer) on a Parabolic Flight’ has been set by Mastercard who teamed up with football legend Luis Figo and other football heroes from across the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America for the historic moment.

Taking fans’ love for the game to whole new heights, (an altitude of 20,230 ft to be exact), two four-player teams battled ZERO-GRAVITY conditions to take the significant title, which was verified by two witnesses and an Official Adjudicator from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™.

Never been done before! Watch Ballon d’Or winner Luis Figo effortlessly dribble across a 807-square feet football field specially set inside the aircraft

The Portuguese former professional footballer is a Mastercard ambassador and has been part of several Priceless surprises around the world.

Figo, a 2000 Ballon d’Or winner, has played for some of Europe’s best clubs including Sporting CP, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, winning 127 caps for the Portugal national team.

Football transcends boundaries and unites people around the world. I have played in stadiums where the electric atmosphere sparks emotions that cuts across cultures and nationalities; this was the exact same experience I had playing this beautiful game at 20,000 feet above ground with a group of fearless football fanatics taking their passion for the sport to unprecedented heights.
