3v3 Soccer is just another way to enjoy the best sport in the entire world. With fewer players on the field each player has more opportunity to touch the ball using and improving their soccer skills.

“3v3 Soccer” is claimed to be the fastest growing form of soccer in the World. 3v3 Soccer is a variety of soccer played between two teams. Each team may only have three players on the field at a time.

The sport’s gain in popularity is largely due to every member of the team getting equal playing time, and roughly equal touches on the ball. All players on the field are a part of the play.

Because of the speed of the game, and the fact that players are constantly in motion.

“During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played I felt free. If it wasn’t for futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today”.

A study by Manchester United showed that small sided games improved soccer players.

  1. No Goalkeepers Why is scoring a goal in 11v11 soccer usually so hard? Because there is someone directly blocking the goal! In 3v3, there are no goalkeepers.

 “During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played I felt free. If it wasn’t for futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today". A study by Manchester United showed that small sided games improved the percentages of the below compared with larger sided games. Passes: +135% or 585 more passes in small sided games Shots Taken: +260% or 481 more shots in small sided games Goals Scored: +500% or 301 more goals in small sided games 1v1’s: +225% or 525 more 1v1’s in small sided games Professional players agree with the stats above: “The amount of space in 11-a-side is not good for young players you spend too much time running around without the ball. I think the best way to improve your skills is to play on a smaller pitch."
