It’s no secret that football soccer is considered the most popular sport around the world. About more than two hundred million people worldwide play it. Amazing numbers, right? Either while watching it or playing it, fun is going to be there. It raises passion everywhere across continents. Being aware that the aim of the game is to drive the ball all the way up to the opposite team’s goal makes all kinds of players pretty excited, now doesn’t it? Of course, our students at EC English School Miami would not be the exception this time.They are big fans who really enjoy playing this awesome game that might be played either outdoors or indoors on a rectangular field of grass or turf. The only difference, though, is that in indoor soccer the court is smaller, and even more convenient for our students since, trust me, the heat in Miami (not the Miami Heat basketball team, LOL) is going to make players tired in the blink of an eye.
This is precisely why just this once we picked a convenient and different property -Urban Soccer Five- a brand new place located on 1125 NW 71st St Miami, FL 33150. It is this kind of place that players rent to make sure they don’t have to deal the rain, just in case. On this occasion, our always cool teacher Joseph (the one with the green puma shirt) came up with the idea of getting soccer pick up games with our students at this spot. Many people showed up, actually fifteen, which was a really suitable number to make up a little tournament. Our students from Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Colombia, Belgium, and Japan got in to two teams with five players each. They all had the chance to play over seven minutes while the rest of the crew was waiting off the court just to jump into action. It was practically a little World Cup, if you know what I mean. It was all organized and pretty smooth while having tons of fun with an EC Miami staff member, as usual.
