What is street soccer?
“Street Soccer has many different styles from all over the world, but what we consider street soccer
to be is fluid play, feints, deception, and extensive use of groundwork, as well as goals, pannas, and
creative moves to beat your opponent. Technique and strategy are the key elements to playing
a good game. Each move in street soccer becomes a way to show a creative attack and escape

The panna is what might be more
commonly known in traditional soccer as
a nutmeg. The idea is to place the ball
between the legs of your opponent and

end of the game regardless of the score at
the time.
Players pair up with 1 ball between 2.
The aim is get as many pannas on your
opponent as possible in a set time.
Disguise and creativity are the key words
here as well as the physically demanding

Can you panna someone in another pair as
well as your own partner?
