Bibs will be provided to teams where there is a colour clash or if a team doesn’t have its own team kit. It is a requirement for all players to wear shin pads.
Street Soccer Academy will provide all the needed equipment for Soccer 24 but we would ask that if you have your own first aid kit available please bring it with you. The venue has a number of vending machines that can be used for refreshments during the event. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshment with you (taps are available to fill water bottles).
At the end of your game we would ask that you take a few minutes to join us in our ‘presentation area’ so that we can formally thank you for attending Soccer 24 and to present to you a little more about the work of Street Soccer Academy and how the money you have raised will help. This will take no more than 3-4 minutes.
