Footbag is a growing sport, played mostly in Europe and North America, though there are a rapidly growing number of footbag clubs and players around the world. Frequently referred to as "Hacky Sack" (a product manufactured by Wham-O, Inc.), footbag has existed as a competitive sport in several forms since the 1970's. There are a substantial number of footbag tournaments and festivals each year. Competitive footbag is governed by the International Footbag Committee (IFC), which publishes the official rules of the sport. Footbag Sports.
Footbag-like activities have existed for many years. There are documented examples like Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan practice and policemen are seen playing it using a shuttlecock in the 1955 movie To Catch a Thief , but the current Western incarnation of the sport was invented in 1972 by Mike Marshall and John Stalberger of Oregon City, Oregon with the Hacky Sack, the rights to which are now owned by Wham-O .
