Johann Cryuff famously said, “Every disadvantage has its advantage”.

Given the developments over the past few weeks and looking forward, it could be a while before life returns to normal. During this time, we believe there is no reason soccer players cannot enjoy and play soccer alone or with family members. With this in mind, we have moved swiftly with our partners TopYa! to develop and provide a free skills contest for players to continue to play and enjoy the beautiful game.
