Neymar Jr’s Five, which reflects the star footballer’s dynamic style of playing, has made its entry to India again.
This five-a-side football game carries the objective of scoring as many goals as fast as possible and outplaying the players of the opposing team.
The team that concedes a goal has to send one player off the pitch, and each game continues until one team has lost all five players, or for 10 minutes, whichever comes first.
The first ever qualifiers for the tournament in India were held earlier this year as Winning 5, with a young team from Bangalore – called Dream Team – emerging victorious, and subsequently travelling to Brazil to compete in the Neymar Jr’s Five World Finals in July this year.
The format returns to India this year when the city qualifiers will be held in 12 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Shillong, Kolkata and Goa, a release issued said.
