Krsna played football
Posted on August 25, 2017
Siddha-svarupa: Football they call soccer here. [break]
Prabhupada: ...men in one party?
Manasvi: Eleven. Devotee: Did Krsna play that? [laughter]
Prabhupada: Unless Krsna played, how you can play? [break] Football play is very popular in India, and rugby. What is that called, rugby?
Manasvi: No, that is hockey.
Prabhupada: Hockey, hockey, yes.

Sometimes Krsna and Balarama would play on Their flutes, sometimes They would throw ropes and stones devised for getting fruits from the trees, sometimes They would throw only stones, and sometimes, Their ankle bells tinkling, They would play football with fruits like bael and amalaki.
From Srila Prabhupada's translation of SB 10.11.39-40
