Street Soccer

Street soccer is often played in urban areas with high affinity for the game and strong youth participation in soccer. While these games are almost always pick up, you often see this style of game in advertisements and media, as it emphasizes the low barrier to entry to play soccer, even for children living in impoverished areas. Street soccer is many players' first introduction to the game. The Brazilian national team's dominance and success on the world stage is often credited to the creativity and freewheeling style of street soccer.
