Antwerp: The Street Football Culture

  • Published 2 years ago

The term street football encompasses a number of informal varieties of association football. These informal games do not necessarily follow the requirements of a formal game of football, such as a standard size field, markings, goal apparatus and corner flags, eleven players per team, or match officials.

Street football can be divided into three varieties: minor adaptations of the association football rules, games based on scoring goals and games which are not.

"De Pleintjes" is a documentary about Antwerp's street football culture. Rough areas such as Het Kiel, Borgerhout, Deurne and Stuivenberg are the backdrops to the social lives of thousands of youngsters. It's these areas where they grow up, learn about the world, and above all, dream of a better future.
