What is Street Soccer?

Street Soccer is a brand of soccer that demands precision, agility and creativity in an environment where extensive foot work is required.

This free style game challenges players to use strength and strategy in an unconventional way.

The term street soccer emerged from playing soccer on the street, where many of the best players from around the world got their start. Today, the street soccer concept applies more as an informal game style than street play only. Its focus is on a fast pace game in small spaces with free-style moves, respecting the fair play of the game.
