Freestyle

Blending artistry and technical prowess, freestyle football focuses on moves not necessarily designed for in-game purposes. Predominantly juggling and aerial tricks, often performed in complex combos, freestyle allows the individual to create their own personal style. As one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, it has become a rich outlet for performance and a site of high-level competition.
