Probably the most fun and entertaining form of soccer in Northwest Florida. Easily our biggest attraction that’s fun for all ages. Birthday parties, soccer tournaments, and one of our training pieces for getting touches on the ball, quick decisions and movement, and total ball mastery. Master 1v1 in our Panna Cage and it’s second nature on the field. See rules below for our 1v1 and 2v2 Panna Cage matches.
An underground movement in the United States, it’s a street soccer game that arguably started with the Dutch. Despite the countless ways it’s played on the streets, Nike and Panna have set the pace with a 3 minute match where 2 players enter the playing area (cages, platforms, streets, etc) and the objective is to Panna or Annap your opponent that outright ends the game. A game of skill, we have modified the game slightly and standardized it for tournament play with rules that allow players to enjoy the experience.
Panna video to help you understand the game:
Here’s a video of our LStreet Panna Cage from past events in Florida:
Players have to challenge 5 different players. Players may challenge any gender and anyone the same age or older. Players may not decline. Players may not challenge younger players, but may not decline a challenge from a younger player.
Usually played on concrete or a hard surface (recommend futsal or rubber soles), 2 players enter the cage with 3 minutes placed on the clock. A Panna or Annap (reverse Panna) is worth 20 points. As seen in the video, there is a goal on opposite sides of the cage. If there are no Pannas or Annaps, the first player with 5 goals or the most goals wins the challenge.
Panna/Annap = 10 (Max of 2 per match)
Goals = 1 (Max of 5 per match)
2 Pannas will end the match early with the player schooling their opponent acquiring 20 points. 5 goals would also end the match early. A perfect match would include 4 goals and 2 Pannas for 24 points.
Highest points acquired with a max of 5 games determines 1st and 2nd place.
Teams will play a minimum of 5 matches against players thier age or older.
Around the world Panna tournaments are run by Nike, Redbull, and other organizations. The objective is to Panna your opponent that ends the game. However our rules are modified slightly for a longer experience. What is a Panna? Same as a nutmeg. when you school your opponent by passing/dribbling the ball between your opponents legs.
Usually played on concrete or a hard surface (recommend futsal or rubber soles), 2 teams (made up of 2 players per team) enter the cage with 3 minutes placed on the clock. A Panna or Annap (reverse Panna) is worth 10 points. As seen in the video, there is a goal on opposite sides of the cage. If there are no Pannas or Annaps, the first team with 5 goals or the most goals wins the challenge. In our 2v2 matches, similar to Nike’s Panna KO, a panna or annap will eliminate that player from the the match. They will return for the next match with the original 2v2 lineup.
A Panna will eliminate a player from the match. Panna both team players on the other team and the match is over. 20 points will be earned unless goals are scored. A perfect match would include 4 goals and 2 Pannas for 24 points.
Highest points acquired with a max of 5 games wins.
Extreme-zone 2013: Street Soccer (уличный футбол) (ФОТО)
21 сентября в парке Приднепровский прошёл грандиозный 9-й областной Фестиваль современной молодёжной культуры «EXTREME-ZONE», в рамках которого состоялись соревнования по уличному футболу
Такого рода фестивали в Кременчуге уже проходили, но в этом году формат проведения стал абсолютно новым явлением, в котором каждый желающий имел возможность проявить себя. Фестиваль вызвал большой интерес, в основном, у молодёжи, а также у родителей юных спортсменов, а люди пенсионного возраста, проживающие в районе площади Победы, к сожалению, мало хорошего видят в такого рода мероприятиях и периодически жалуются на громкую музыку.
Организаторами Фестиваля традиционно стали Молодёжный Парламент Кременчуга, Кременчугский городской комитет молодёжных организаций, управление по делам семьи и молодёжи, «Фонд поддержки студенческой молодёжи» при поддержке мэра города Олега Бабаева и народного депутата Украины Юрия Шаповалова, которые и открыли Фестиваль по приезду на площадь участников велопробега, стартовавшего с ДК «КрАЗ». Юрий Шаповалов предоставил свою раллийную машину Mitsubishi Lancer и свои Кубки на всеобщее обозрение, и вместе с мэром покинули праздник современной молодёжной культуры. В 18:30 мэр был уже на стадионе «Донбасс-Арена», где проходил матч чемпионата «Премьер-лиги» Украины по футболу между командами «Шахтёр» и «Ворскла». Скажем, что на фоне авто и кубков было сделано множество фотографий.
Все молодёжные направления были разделены на соответствующие зоны, а их было немного немало – 11.
Тяжело выделить направление, которое вызвало наибольший ажиотаж у зрителей, но стоит остановиться на уличном футболе – Street Soccer. В соревнованиях приняли участие 35 команд, которые по олимпийской системе (игры на вылет — автор) определили победителя и призёров. По регламенту матч состоял из двух таймов по 5 минут, а “уличные правила”, а именно: запрет вратарю выходить из штрафной площади, а игрокам заходить в любую из штрафных площадей, доставили массу хлопот футболистам, так как в наказание за содеянное сразу назначали пенальти.
Победителем стала команда из Комсомольска «Фортуна», «серебро» — у команды «Оловянные солдатики», «бронза» — у «Транзит-Сервиса».
Также по итогам соревнований были определены победители в следующих номинациях: «Лучшим игроком» назван Алексей Василина, «Лучший бомбардир» — Виталий Геревич, «Лучший вратарь» — Дмитрий Дериенко, «Лучший защитник» — Михаил Быков, «Лучший нападающий» — Александр Резник и «Волшебник мяча» — Павел Самарчев.

The official rulebook of Street Football
To begin with, let’s hail the Chinese emperors of 5 th century BC. Anyone who ticked off these emperors would have their heads cut off and those mutilated heads would be kicked around as a form of entertainment. And with rise in trade and commerce, people from faraway lands deemed this practice fashionable and thus, football came into existence.
Football is a lifesaver. What would our lives be had the Chinese rulers not cut off some heads. The very sight of the black-and-white air-filled sphere (not bloody heads of dead prisoners) gets us all restless. One touch and some dribbling immediately starts soothing our nerves.
And despite the fact that the ‘Gentlemen’s game’ is preferred over football without blinking an eye in India, street football is steadily on the rise in our country. Kids in almost every locality can be seen playing the game worshipped all over the globe. But every game has a set of rules and street football is no different. The rules in this game are a bit bizarre with the main reason being that … um … it’s played on the streets, often leading to hilarious situations. Nonetheless, every street footballer must abide by these set of rules.
Presenting the official rulebook of street football…
Never get in an argument with the ball’s owner: Getting into an argument with the ball owner is risky business and once you start an argument, you tread those murky paths alone. The owner of the ball is the undisputed emperor. Get into a squabble and the chances of the ball-owner going home increase. No football means you getting subjected to abuses from everyone. So, never, ever get in a fight with the owner of the ball!
The ‘HALT’ rule: Since it’s street football, vehicles and people coming in your way is inevitable. And in case a vehicle arrives or departs, when someone screams – HALT!, it’s an immediate signal to stop play. Slyly moving the ball ahead during the time-out (which are sometimes too frequent for comfort) is rife in the game, leading to prolonged disputes and in most cases, better sense never really prevails.
Next goal the winner: The sun is setting and one team is winning 15-9. The guy with the ball has to go home. In such a situation, the golden goal rule is applied. Logic just goes for a stroll in the park. Next goal wins and s**t just gets real. And in most cases, the team trailing usually triumphs.
Benefit of the doubt is with the conceder: The fact that the goalposts are generally bags or rocks is known to pretty much everyone. And in case the ball goes marginally over or beside the post, the goal does not stand. Argue as much as you can, but if the ball even marginally grazes the inside of the post, the goal is not a goal.
The fat guy gets to be the ‘keeper: Goalkeepers have one of the most thankless jobs. But in street football, no one cares! The flabbiest or slowest usually is the man between the stones. But if any outfield player is having a torrid time and is allergic to scoring goals, prone to misplacing passes and having a poor game in general, it’s time for him to be keeper. Street football truly is survival of the fittest!
Banging is banned and volleying is vetoed: The statement itself gives you a fair idea. Never, ever volley the ball. Why? Well, most don’t have good control over their shots and the ball, many-a-times, gets lodged into the plant collection on the verandah of some random couple (frequently an old couple). And the heroic task of retrieving the ball is mostly done by the one who hit it in the first place and his scared but loyal sidekick. One knocks, the other asks. Never bang either, because it has an even higher chance of hitting something or someone!
Penalty is given only if the fouled player swears: In street football, a display of brute force by either of the two teams, or in some cases both teams, is normal. And in case of a foul in the d-line (or should I make it ‘the hypothetical d-line’), a penalty is seldom given, unless the presumably fouled player sets free the maniac inside him, which includes bombarding the opposition with a barrage of curses and the two 4-lettered words at an unfaltering pace. Do all this and the odds of getting a penalty suddenly rise.
Whenever a random guy arrives: Whenever a new guy arrives (and the new arrival may be a toddler or even a merrily married man) after the match has already commenced and asks whether we have ‘space’ for an extra player, our instantaneous reply is – ‘I don’t know! Ask x’. When the guy asks x, he says ‘Ask y’. He asks y, y tells him to ask z and the cycle goes on.
No referee: No ref means nobody to supervise you. So if you can’t break your opponent’s spirit, you can at least break their shins!
And the last and most important rule of all is… that there are no rules! Good luck!
