Last year Soccer 5 USA entered in an agreement with Miami-Dade Parks and Recreation Department to design, build, and operate 5v5 Soccer facilities at Kendall Soccer Park – . Soccer 5’s ultimate goal is to encourage the local and national interest in Soccer in the US, which has been bolstered by the admirable performance of the US team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Their premise is simple and has been reiterated in numerous articles that try to understand the lack of interest for the sport in the US; Americans find the game long and feel that there are too few points scored per match. Soccer 5’s 5v5 matches seek to resolve both issues by making the field proportionately smaller, resulting in a shorter, more dynamic game with a higher score average.

About Soccer 5 USA:

The evolution of 5v5 soccer in the USA, a game for all ages and skill levels for all who play soccer, talk soccer, shop soccer. And soccer 5 mission is to see 5 v 5 soccer being played in every city by World Cup 2014, and doing all it can to support 'the game is in the US' World Cup future bid.
