Gold Coast plan to boost crowds revealed

Small sided games is the buzz word in Australia football? Isn't it?

You know 4 v 4 or 5 v 5 is the usual model played with kids used at half-time in the professional arena's to entertain and educate the crowds.

Not in the Gold Coast.

Yesterday with FFA Technical Director Han Berger watching did you see the 10 v 10 game with one ball and played in a small area at half-time during the Gold Coast game screened on Fox Sports. And the players looked to be around 9 and 10 years of age.

Maybe it was a full size game with young kids.

Hasn't anyone heard of Small-Sided Games in the Gold Coast? Or maybe it's away of getting more players and parents in to boost the crowds.

Loved the games, keep em up..only next time put more players on the field, why stop at 11?
