Street Soccer Format of Play

Fare #footballpeople activity event Street Soccer “a small-sided soccer game”, four players from each team on a miniature field (basketball court). Because there are fewer players and a smaller field, everyone has plenty of touches on the ball and chances to score! The game is played at a much higher pace, which helps players perfect all of the soccer techniques and tactics. Street soccer (4 V 4 adopted from the Homeless World Cup) requires that everyone on the team work together. Except we did not raise a hedge at the side of the court but simply marked the line for clear visibility during play.
