With every heartbeat, the crew at Four Plus One feel soccer pulsing through their veins. This passion becomes tangible on the soccer pitch, where Four Plus One organizes five-a-side league play for players of all ages and skill levels. Playing a five versus five match, as opposed to the standard 11 versus 11, makes the game more accessible and gives players more touches on the ball, allowing them to develop their skills at a faster pace. Games are played on a boarded field shipped in on a hovercraft from England, the results in a faster pace for adrenaline-fueled, energetic, and cardio-intensive competition.
The organization focuses solely on its one true love, soccer, allowing it to perfect its league and the game, instead of spreading thin organizing softball, basketball, and alien-human-hybridization leagues. Certified refs patrol the pitch, meaning players can count on honest, fair play. As a part of Windy City Wanders FA, Four Plus One shares an affiliation with the Chicago Fire, maintaining a solid presence in Chicago's soccer-loving community from rec leagues all the way to the pros.
