Connect Team is proud to announce the Connect Team 5v5 Football Tournament starting March 2020. After the success of the Connect Team Club Tournament, the 5v5 Football Tournament continues to provide significant player development using a fun and exciting brand of soccer.
There are many benefits to 5v5 Football for youth development compared to traditional Futsal and 11-A-Side soccer
With the small court, players are constantly placed in demanding decision-making situations, requiring quick thinking, good ball control, precise passing, and creative solutions.
The rules of 5v5 Football favor skilful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of traditional outdoor soccer.
Slide tackles and excessive bodily contact is forbidden in the 5v5 Football Tournaments, resulting in fewer injuries.
Smaller team sizes allow players to get more frequent touches on the ball and increased opportunities to score goals.
Players are not just a defender or an attacker but a complete player resulting in a much better all-round understanding of the game.
5v5 Football Tournament is a simple game and devoid of complex rules such as ‘off-side’.
