FC Tucson soccer: Behind the MLK building across the street from the Congress Hotel

4 to 10 p.m.:  The FC Tucson Street Soccer Showdown is soccer in its purest form: absent of age restrictions, uniform restrictions or even skill restrictions. It’s just 10 players in a 5 vs. 5 matchup playing soccer because they love it; on the street, spontaneously.  The result takes a backseat to the process and the buildup and the fun everyone has just kicking the ball around cleverly, trying to avoid each other. Don’t let another 2nd Saturday go by without hitting the street with just the clothes you’re wearing, your friends and a desire to play soccer. It’s free to play.  For more information email liam@fctucson.com.
