Sixteen teams faced off in the mud for the title of world's best.

ARGYLL, SCOTLAND (NBC) - The world's attention is focused on Brazil and the 2014 World Cup, but we're going to Scotland next to show you a World Cup of a wackier variety.

Over the weekend, Scotland hosted the Swamp Soccer World Cup.

Sixteen teams faced off in the mud for the title of world's best.

It's the pinnacle of a very messy sport with some strange rules, like players can't change shoes.

Due to the conditions, set pieces are taken with a drop kick and there is no offside rule.

There's also an unlimited number of substitutions during the 24 minute matches.

The co-ed team won its final on penalties 4-3.

The all men's team final ended in a score of 3-1.
