At its core, Jumpball is defined as a futuristic sport, mostly resembling a "combination of American football and gymnastics."

After the utter devastation of the Earth during the Disorders, space was a huge issue, as most of it has been contaminated either in a biological, chemical or nuclear fashion. The Disorders wiped Earth's population to a mere 2 billion. The few bits of land that made it through the war were too valuable to the Federation to play sports on, so all the outdoor activities have been moved inside. Jumpball is played in a gym with fourteen players, seven per team. Like with antique Football, the goal is to advance the ball over the field and score a touchdown by reaching the enemy endzone. Should the attacking team fail to advance the ball, the players from that team are substituted and their defence takes the field. Jumpball is very popular throughout the Federation, with many planetary rivalries, for example Hesperus and Hod.

Over the course of several hundreds of years and the Federation ever expanding its size (and soaring population numbers), Jumpball grown a lot closer to antique gridiron. While still being played indoors in a 0.88 G environment, the field size has been increased drastically. This allows for 11 players to be on the field on each team again.

The Federal Jumpball League has given the primary broadcasting license to the Federal Sports Networks. For the current standings, see here.
