StreetStadia: Four plus One & Marco Pappa

Chicago based Four Plus One have just launched their inner city after school football programs (Four Plus One Academy) in conjunction with the Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) using the UK manufactured StreetStadia mobile football pitch.  To help them launch the new venture they have enlisted the help of Marco Pappa – for those of you who might not know, he is the David Becham of ‘soccer’ in the USA.

We’ve already talked about the popularity of 5-a-side football in the US – see our blog 15m x 10m Portable Football Pitch Still the Popular Choice – and these guys are taking it to the next level by investing in their own portable 5-a-side football pitch.   The video includes some great footage of the soccer legend together with a solid performance by the StreetStadia!

Four Plus One was created by a group of people who love the 5-a-side game, believe in it’s power to help grow the sport in the US and want to get as many people playing it as possible.

Unlike most other leagues, Four Plus One believes in playing within a purpose built ‘soccer cage’ or enclosed portable football pitch with boards around the edge. This is to keep the ball constantly moving (strictly below head height!) and to encourage the intense feeling that 5-a-side streetsoccer gives. You won’t find any cones or pop-up goals here!

Check out this StreetStadia Chicago video promo filmed with the help of US soccer legend Marco Pappa.
