SoCal's Umar Dalati broke down one of his favorite moves that, as you can probably tell from the name, makes him feel like a b-boy. Considering Dalati is 6-foot and then some, it appears certain lower-body tricks might be a challenge for...
I remember the night Josh Rey filmed this unreal combo at our facility for theFC. Although I was busy handling pickup game duties that night, I sneaked in a few peeks during the filming, including Alex Mendoza's bit. After seeing the full JBR move...
Most people have heard of Séan Garnier. Even if you're not a hardcore soccer or freestyle fan, you've probably seen him in this commercial disguised as an old man or battling Neymar for street points. After announcing his presence on an international stage by...
Professional soccer player Yael Averbuch, who's a member of FC Kansas City and a midfielder for the U.S. Women's National Team, demonstrates an acrobatic move that "probably" wouldn't be used in a real game. Maybe a friendly pickup. Either way, it's...
Going into 2016, the street team with the most hype is, without a doubt, the Brazuca Ballers. If you follow the L.A. street soccer scene at all, unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the crew recently won both the Nike Winner...
Twenty-year-old Damian Pasternak, who goes by "Tozi," seems to slow down time and space during this gravity defying freestyle session. At times, it looks like he's using an invisible force to levitate the ball while executing the Palle Around...
Fox 11 News recently featured UrbanFutsal LA and the ladies of LA Villa FC, one of the top adult women's clubs in L.A., to discuss the Women's World Cup, playing in co-ed leagues, and the growing popularity of futsal...
Alex Mendoza, otherwise known as Alex17, puts together one of his freestyle combos: The L.A. Swag. It's a fitting name coming from this one-time U.S. Freestyle Champion who has been getting the attention of companies like Adidas, At&T, and the MLS, who apparently want...
I know it makes the visuals look cool, but why are all of these Nike videos from Amsterdam filmed on wet concrete? Did it rain the entire week they were there or did an assistant hose everything down before they filmed?...
The Los Angeles Football Club, L.A.'s newest MLS team, has been storming the City of Angels like Tony Montana. And I'm not talking about the busted old Tony at the end of "Scarface" either. No, I'm referring to the young, brash, and desperately...
Multiple Guinness World Records holder, including for most headers in a minute and most ATWs in a minute, and decorated freestyle champ Laura Biondo makes "The Clipper" seem deceptively easy. The trick actually requires a lot of finesse and touch, of which the Venezuelan-born Italian...
There's a reason why it's called "The Beautiful Game," and a large part of that is because it comes from the streets. Pelé grew up in poverty, and would stuff a sock with newspapers or use a grapefruit for a ball,...
Have you been introduced yet to Keisuke, aka freestyle10k? This kid has a ridiculous flow, and he's only 16! When I was his age, I was just trying to pass with my left foot. I know Japan has a lot of strange,...
We've seen some amazing street footballers, but now it's time to really turn up the heat with a countdown of some of the greatest canines in street ball from around the world! Fame, glory, and riches are always great incentives for...
Street ballers and police usually don't get along, but fortunately this takes place in Denmark, where apparently the five-o are willing to get their panna handed to them by street ballers. And oh hey, they happen to be legends. Seriously though, Jeand Doest and...
On this particular crazy night at UrbanFutsal LA, we had some major ballers drop in for some "friendly" pickup. The Street King himself, Edward van Gils, Mohamed Reda (aka M10), and members of the Bola crew were in the building...
Over 100 soccer teams descended upon Las Vegas this past week for a 5v5 tournament that offered cash prizes and an all-expense paid trip to Bangkok, Thailand. The amateur event produced by World Soccer 5s USA was open to male and...
We asked Kristoffer Liicht of Copenhagen Panna House to demonstrate the move he used on the boss himself, Séan Garnier, during a past panna competition. Liicht is a panna stud with humility and a passion for the game. He's competed against nearly all the...
In this edition of pro athletes dressing up like old people, Cristiano Ronaldo schools unsuspecting normals in a town square of Madrid, Spain. On any given day, the Real Madrid striker and international fashion icon would be swarmed by...
Y'all know Palle, right? As in the guy the "Palle Around the World" move is named after? Anyhow, Rickard Sjölander, aka Palle, shows how he manages to juggle football and dad duties in this day-in-the-life vid. I have a feeling his baby...
