Street Soccer


Verve 3V3 inflatable pitches.


Here at Verve Sports we believe that the young people in the UK have lost the creative approach to football, we feel the pressure from some parents and some coaches is crippling their enjoyment of football.

Street Soccer has many different styles from all over the world, but what we consider street soccer to be is fluid movement on the ball, feints, deception and extensive use of ground work, as well as goals, pannas and creative moves to beat your opponent. Technique and strategy are the key elements of development.

Street Soccer doesn't have to be an alternative to the game played on the weekends, young people across Europe are turning to this urban, inclusive and enjoyable game: All of the skills learned and developed playing Street Soccer will only improve your football game.
Played in fast, frantic small sided games of 3v3, 2v2 or 1v1 and with a few basic rules, Street Soccer strips away the traditions and formalities of football, giving players total control of the game.

Street Soccer rewards both individual skills and scoring goals, encouraging players to attempt extraordinary and innovative skills and tricks to try and beat their opponents. The ultimate Street Soccer skill is the Panna (termed a ‘nutmeg’ or ‘megsy’ in the UK) A Panna is rewarded with a point and in some cases results in an instant win!

Over the last few years a Street Soccer revolution has been sweeping the UK’s streets, and when you consider what Street Soccer provides, it’s not difficult to work out why:

• A learning environment where you are encouraged to express yourself and mistakes are positively encouraged
• A playing environment that is relaxed and promotes creativity.
• No pressure from anyone to win.
• More touches of the ball allowing individual skill to blossom
• Music to get the creative juices flowing
• Pure fun and enjoyment of the game
