Going into its fifth year, the German Street Soccer Cup in Atlanta, Georgia is a fun way for soccer players ages 8 through 16 to participate in a multicultural game of soccer. While the name suggests that it is a German-themed game, the 5 vs 5 games are made up of 16 tri-lingual teams. Each team is required to have at least one German-speaking player and at least one other player that can speak another foreign language, such as Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, etc.
On November 10th, teams will play sets of two 10 minute period games on a street soccer field, and by the end of the day a winning team will be declared. This is a great way for kids to brush up on their second languages while sharing a common interest. There are not any fees to take part in the tournament, but participants must register by November 6. Space is limited, so the earlier you sign up the better.
As of press time, the registration form has not gone live online, but when it does, you will find it at www.gs-streets.sportsaffinity.com. In the meantime, feel free to call (888) 436-5833 with any questions regarding registration or the event itself.
