On April 30, the 4th stage of the international street football league "Ghetto Football Euroleague" was held in Prague, where Latvians were crowned champions in the 3v3 football tournament. The next stage of the Euroleague is already tomorrow - May 4, in Brussels, Belgium.
The "Crème de la crème” of each tournament is the final game of the 3v3 street football tournament, in which Latvia won its first ticket to the grand final in Riga on June 8. It must be said that this team is also the youngest team that has won a ticket to the grand final so far! The legendary team from Grīziņkalns (a suburb in Riga) "Who is Janka?" also took part in the tournament, who unfortunately fell out in the ¼ finals.
The mission of Ghetto Football Euroleague is to develop 3vs3 street football. As part of the Euroleague, the winning team in the big group can win a ticket to the grand final in Riga in 10 different European countries! In parallel with this, Ghetto Football Euroleague also holds tournaments in panna, freestyle disciplines, as well as 3vs3 football in the girls' group.
One of the standout winners in the freestyle championship of the Prague tournament is definitely Philip Warren Gertsson, who is a Sweden-based, Norwegian-Philippine street soccer freestyle player. Around him, he gathers hundreds of thousands of followers on social networks, creating daily content with street football maneuvers and tricks. "This tournament is great, I already want to go again and experience these emotions, the opponents will also become stronger in the tournaments, it's great!" That's what Philip says after the victory in the final
