Why Play 5v5?

  • Accepted worldwide as the most effective game for developing youth players.
  • The national youth game of Brazil, credited with creating the highest number of international superstars from one country.
  • Fast becoming the format of choice in many US states, now mandated into the national academy program by the US Soccer Federation.
  • Provides over 300% more touches, shots, passing combinations, and one on one confrontations compared to 8V8 format.
  • Allows for better tactical development. Fewer players on the field allows players to track teammates and opponents, allowing for better awareness of time and space.

Revolutionary mandate from US Club Soccer
Don’t deprive your players from developing progressively by pushing them to play up on large fields too early. Small-sided and age appropriate venues are highly recommended by the leading youth soccer scholars, and mandated by the United States Soccer Federation.

5V5 develops the brain, accelerates technical and tactical development, allows coaches to actually mentor their young players, and it’s just more fun. Why would you play anything else?

“As a little boy in Argentina, I played (5v5) on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today.”

-Lionel Messi, three-time FIFA World Player of the Year and Barcelona’s all-time leading
