What we're about
Let's play the American sport of the future (as it's been since 1972)! Members of this group want to meet new players each week but enjoy playing with a core group of familiar players. Members also want to get a good run in, and even watch/discuss the highs and lows of the footballing world.
There is a small fee ($3/meetup). It's a small investment in having a well-run regular group, where you feel safe and invested in a good game, trust your fellow players, have teams equally divided for skill/position types, etc. The money gets invested right back into the group to cover the costs of Meetup.com, new (and freshly laundered) scrimmage jerseys, match balls, goals, and other equipment for the group.
We all come to meetups from different backgrounds and have different goals for these games. However, I believe the true essence of the sport is the pass.
"Passing is the act of generosity" - Arsene Wenger.
Be generous and make the game better. Come to these games to play with other people, not to prove anything to them.
