Are you ready for some Futbol?

Hey soccer fans!  Looking for a place to play?  Well we've got some great news.  The Bartlett Events team and Soccer1, a Boston-based non-profit that operates a series of programs, social business ventures and collaborative projects to support community development through soccer, are teaming up in an official partnership to bring weekly pickup soccer games to the site!

Under a new program from Soccer1 called PickUpFooty@, Bartlett Yard will be the host to weekly futbolito games, which are played with a smaller, heavier ball to take advantage of the smaller field size in urban areas.  Futbolito games also have smaller 3-5 person teams and feature more footwork than regular soccer.  Don't confuse this with the other futbolito, also known as foosball.

The games will take place every Sunday starting in late May and will go throughout the summer and fall.  Lace up your shoes and head on down to Bartlett to play!
