3V3 Live Soccer Coming to Mobile December 2015
Jul 27th, 2015
“3v3 Live is very excited to be coming to Mobile in December,” Mike Tew, 3v3 Live President, said. “This location will offer our teams a chance to play in the winter and then go to the beach.”
The unique aspect of this event is the Mobile tournament will be the final regional held that allows teams to qualify for the Disney 3v3 Soccer World Championship, Jan. 16-18, 2016, in Orlando. Teams ranging from ages 6 to adult and all skill levels will compete for one last chance to qualify for the World Championship.
“Because of the investment, which the City and County of Mobile have recently made to upgrade the soccer fields at Sage Park, the Mobile Sports Authority was able to attract 3v3 Live to Mobile,” Danny Corte, Executive Director of the MSA, said. “The younger age group generally makes up 3v3 teams and helps to attract several family members per player, thereby making for a fun experience for all involved.”
Regional tournaments average between 85-180 six-person teams with up to 75 percent of teams coming from outside the area. For more information about 3v3 Live and/or to register for the Mobile tournament, visit www.3v3live.com/gulf.
About 3v3 Live Soccer
Based out of Utah, 3v3 Live has existed since 1996 and is a major soccer tour in the United States with tournaments being played all over the country. Each team may only have three players on the field at a time and is commonly referred to as a “small-sided” game played on a field smaller than a regulation soccer pitch. With fewer players on the field, each player has more opportunities to touch the ball, using and improving their soccer skills. Small-sided games can develop player’s decision-making, technical attributes, tactical knowledge and physical conditioning through functional movements.
