new playing form for young players

  • SMALL SIDED football GAMES
  • many MATCHES
  • anybody CAN PLAY
  • LOTS OF FUN FOR Everyone

*variety of pitch setup options and combinations from 2v2 to 5v5


  • Players have lots of involvement with lots more touches than in other forms of football like 7 v 7, 9 v 9.
  • Players practice decision making repeatedly.
  • Because there are no set positions, players will practice their skills in attacking and defensive game situations in multiple directions.
  • Because there are two goals to attack and two goals to defend, players practice their skills on all areas of the field. Players are also encouraged to use both feet for passing and shooting.
  • Due to the high level of active participation, players will quicker improve their skills and positional play.
  • There is no focus on winning, players are encouraged to take risks and making mistakes is ok.
  • Playing numerous games reduces the focus on the game scores which generates a fun festival atmosphere.
  • Young players get to practice Fair Play and make decisions without a referee.
