Two freestyle football players challenge themselves to a Game Of Trick!

Red Bull Street Style, the pioneer and most prestigious of all freestyle football tournaments, celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2018 with an amazing comeback in cooperation with the World Freestyle Football Association (WFFA).

Freestyle football is the art of doing tricks with a football… but it’s not only the fancy moves which make this sport unique: freestyle is a lifestyle that transcends the sport to become a form of art.

The newly created national and continental tournaments which appeared in the mid-2000s gave freestylers a boost of motivation to train and develop their own style. In 2008, freestyle football made its definitive step towards thanks to the support of Red Bull, which organised the first major global competition: Red Bull Street Style. Its first champion was the French Sean Garnier, who won the title in Brazil with a unique approach that had never been seen before.

Since then, Red Bull Street Style has crowned world champions in South Africa (Azun, from Norway, won the title in Cape Town in 2010), in Italy (Tokura, from Japan, won in Lecce in 2012), Japan (Szymo, from Poland, won in Tokyo in 2013), Brazil (Andrew, from the UK, won in Salvador de Bahía in 2014) and the UK (Mélody Donchet, from France, and Charly Iacono, from Argentina, won the female and male competitions respectively in London in 2016).
