Neymar Jr’s Five challenge comes to Malta

Brazil’s and Barcelona’s great Neymar Jr is giving thousands of young football players the chance to step up their game by staging a unique knock-out tournament. The striker is inviting players between the ages of 16 and 25 years in more than 35 countries across the world, including Malta, to team up for his five-a-side tournament, named ‘Neymar Jr’s Five’.

“This is the kind of football I have always loved to play and this time we will be playing football with a special twist: each five-player team will lose one player each time they concede a goal until there are no players left,” said Neymar Jr.

The event in Malta will be held at the Luxol Grounds in April. More information for the Local Qualifier can be found on the Facebook event page Neymar Jr’s Five – Malta and teams can register on
