May 19: Neymar Jr’s Five Qualifier — Miami, FL

Red Bull’s global five-a-side tournament is well underway in the U.S. After a successful LA qualifier, the next big one to look forward to is taking place in the same venue as last year’s National Finals. The Urban Soccer Five center is a really special facility with multiple small-sided soccer fields. Quick reminder on the rules — every time a team gets scored on, they lose a player. Winner is the team with the most goals after 10 minutes, or whoever scores five goals and eliminates all opposing players first. Overtime is a 1v1 golden goal situation. Come check it out to really get a feel for it!
