The winners go to the final, played every year on June 24, the day of the partron of Florence, St. John the Baptist. The official rules of calcio (football) were written for the first time in 1580 by Giovanni de Bardi, a count from Florence. The teams are formed by 27 players and the ball can be played either with hands or feet. Tactics such as punching, elbowing and all martianl arts techniques are allowed but kicks to the are forbidden, as are fights of two or more against one. There is a referee, a fielde master, and six linesmen. The game lasts 50 minutes, and the winning team is the one who scores most points. The playing field is a giant sand pit with a narrow split constuting the goal running the width of each end. The Calcio Storico was not played for 200 years, until its revival in 1930.
