THOSE with skills on the football pitch are being invited to show their stuff on concrete at an event at the University of Sunderland today (Thursday).

StreetWise Soccer is bringing its Street Soccer Tournament to the city and is also offering the chance to play in the shadows of Wembley Stadium.

Street soccer involves three-on-three football games, combined with urban music.

A regional qualifier for the chance to get to the national final is taking place today at the university’s City Space facility, on Chester Road.

UK street soccer champion Sean Thompson, who has starred on Soccer AM’s Skill Skool, will also be demonstrating some of his tricks.

The event takes place until 4pm today.

A limited number of places are available on the day.
