“The Freestyle Football Federation is the world governing body for the sport of freestyle football. It is committed to growing awareness of and participation in freestyle football worldwide.”

Anyone can get into freestyle football – all you need is a ball! It is the art and sport of juggling a football using all parts of the body to entertain audiences and outperform opponents in competitions. It is a fusion of tricks with a ball, dance and music.

The Federation owns the World Freestyle Football Championships and have created a rankings system and support structure that allows anyone to pick up a ball and not only enjoy the sport, but also develop their own pathway to becoming a professional.

The Federation has been established upon a backbone of community development and education. This means we recognise the power this exciting sport has to inspire healthy active lifestyles for young people all over the world. Aside from growing the sport as a full time profession for the athletes, the Federation is committed to teaching key life skills, nutrition and academics (education) through freestyle football.

There are 93 country members in the network, which means a registered group of people and organisations in 93 countries of the world are committed to growing freestyle football as a sport in its own right and to delivering social opportunity through the sport too.

Whilst there are just over 5000 professional freestyle football athletes in the world right now, the total number of people who participate and enjoy freestyle football can be paralleled to mainstream football, because everyone who plays football will juggle with the ball at some stage and this forms the foundation of freestyle. Therefore one could suggest that participation is estimated at over 400 million, with a direct audience of 1.47 billion football fans around the globe who enjoy the entertainment of freestyle football.

Freestyle Football is however a completely different discipline to football (soccer) when you look more deeply into the sport. It is about pushing the body to extreme limits, allowing creativity to flow and owning the ball in your own unique way.

Training in Freestyle Football can dramatically build core fundamental skills that are useful in all aspects of life and across other sport disciplines. These include body awareness, balance, rhythm, control, touch, co-ordination and more intrinsic benefits such as self-confidence, respect, patience and taking responsibility.

Freestyle Football has something for everyone. It is a sport that allows males and females equal rights and that absolutely anyone can enjoy from whatever environment they find themselves in. The Freestyle Football Federation was created to make sure everyone gets the chance to be recognized as part of a community.
