Global 5s is a nationwide youth 5-a-side soccer tournament created specifically for boys and girls players aged 8-16 years and uniquely designed to crown the USA’s youth 5-a-side Regional and National Champions.

Boys and girls youth players initially compete within their own age group in their Regional Global 5s event. Each regional age group winner gains FREE entry into the Global 5s National Championship that will take place on July 29th -30th 2016 in Hoboken, New Jersey, a venue with one of the most spectacular backdrops in the USA – the Manhattan skyline.

Hoboken City FC and the City of Hoboken, NJ are proud sponsors of the 2016 Global 5s competition. As hosts we are looking forward to welcoming families from across the country to our community for this fantastic event on the Hudson River waterfront. Best wishes to all the teams as you compete for the chance to experience the best of Hoboken – on and off the fields!
