The annual Premier UK 5's Tournament is North Carolina's biggest 5 v 5 competition. Introduced in 2015, the tournament has seen over 100 teams compete in it's first 2 years. Offering players a chance to play in small sided, high intensity games to get them prepared for the new soccer season. It is the perfect way to get fitness and a huge amount touches on the ball before the regular season starts.
Studies have shown that 5 v 5 games see more shots, more passes, more dribbles and more 1 v 1 encounters than 6 v 6, 8 v 8 and 11 v 11, making it a perfect development tool for all players. Elite British Clubs such as Manchester United have made both 4 v 4 and 5 v 5 a key part of their development model for their academies.
