Park the bus

Tactic used by football (soccer) teams, in which they play defensively for the entire game, in order to deny an apparently superior team any goals and escape with a scoreless draw and thus with one point, instead of risking it all and going for three points and possibly getting none.

Often involves pulling all 11 players in front of the ball, essentially daring the attacking team to send all 11 of theirs out.

Name is suggestive of putting a bus in front of the goal. One of several tactics referred to by football fans as "anti-football," and generally frowned upon by all but fans of the teams employing it.
