Jugger is a sport that was inspired from the 1989 movie The Salute of the Jugger, released in the USA as The Blood of Heroes. The writer/director David Webb Peoples invented Jugger especially for the movie. The original transformation of the game into a real sport happened in two places independently, in Germany and in the USA. Soon Australia joined the Juggers. Jugger as sport is gaining popularity in Germany, especially with university and college teams, with its own league. There are teams in Australia, Ireland, England, Denmark, Spain, Costa Rica and The Netherlands. A couple of variations of the sport are played in the USA. Some follow the International version while others use a model that more closely resembles The Game that is played in the movie. The first ever Jugger international tournament took place in Hamburg, Germany on 20 May 2007 between the Irish team Setanta and a number of the Northern German teams. In 2008, Australia and Ireland came to Germany to take part in the 1. German Open, the first two-continent tournament in Jugger.
