Where will freestyle be in 5-10 years?

If every club had to contract a freestyler or freestylers. Then these freestylers would train and travel with the club and kind of be part of the team. They can maybe even be a tricks coach or something.Then in half times the freestylers from both clubs battle it out, and have a showdown. There wont be an official winner coz itl' take too much time to have judging, but the audience can decide who the better freestyler was.

This way, there will always be entertainment in half time and it should give freestylers a set job and maybe even recognition


To support the idea. Billy Wingrove is contracted to Tottenham Hotspur to teach the Tottenham players about freestyle soccer. I'm not sure whether he does half time shows but occasionally he does in Tottenham games at White Hart Lane. :D

I thought of a crazy Idea on how 2 promote freestyle:

Tell me what u think of my idea?

That is one of the coolest ideas i've ever heard. You should send that to USSF or the English FA cause if i were them i would at least look into doing it.

I couldn't see freestyling ever moving past what it is today (unless supersyed's idea catches on). Street preformers probably earn some change in tips from passerbyers.

Edit:Heiky0711 I know that billy wingrove has preformed at halftime of an international game (i think it was wales vs Brazil)

Thanks :D I just want to add to that courtesy of Beyond Football

"Billy displays and teaches his freestyle tricks and skills for Tottenham's coaching in the community schemes, corporate sponsors and on the pitch for half time and pre-match entertainment for Premiership games. He has also appeared as half time entertainment for England international matches."

EDIT: I've just written an article about this topic and if you guys are interested you can read it here:

What I would like to see would be a soccer\freestyle version of AND1: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And1 which could make lots of money and raise awareness and interest in freestyle/street soccer.
