The Freestyle Football Federation (F3), supported by Splash Adelaide will hold the Australian Titles at Adelaide Oval on Saturday 11th July.
The tournament is set to feature some of the world’s best athletes showing off their incredible skills, and what can be achieved with a soccer ball through dedicated practice and imagination.
This will be the 6th year of the Australian Titles and after visiting Sydney and Melbourne it is now Adelaide’s turn to host the best Freestylers from all over the country. They will be fighting it out to be crowned Australian Champion and pick up 125 F3 World Ranking Points, which could see them earn enough points to make the F3 World Tour, the pinnacle for Freestyle Footballers.
Freestyling is becoming increasingly popular, with a lot of teenagers taking up the sport that they have seen all over You Tube. Because of its growing popularity, Freestyle Football Federation Oceania (OF3) President, Paul Harvey, is expecting a large turnout of Freestylers in South Australia for the event.
“Thanks to Splash and the Adelaide Oval we have allocated some of the budget to help fly some of the guys over to South Australia via the OF3 Travel Grant Fund. We have a mini bus coming over from Melbourne and with $500 Cash up for grabs for the winner, I’m sure we will have a great turnout of Freestylers. This years champion could be anyone as the guys are progressing a such a rapid rate, so it will be hotly contested.”
Adelaide will be represented by the only female in the sport, Susan Sohar, plus a freestyler you may have seen if you are a regular at the Adelaide United games, Rikki Singh. Also returning is Brendan Preston who took time out of the sport but is back now and keen as ever to win the Australian Title in his hometown.
Kicking off at 12pm, the event has been moved to inside the South Gate in the Riverbank Stand Foyer of the Adelaide Oval due to the wet weather forecast! So don’t let the rain stop you from going and checking out this awesome event!
