All levels of play welcome for this music-on street weekly soccer/futsal game!

About this event

This unofficial street soccer court was created as part of the Houston Town Futsal Ball-A-Block program. These weekend pickups at The Block are free to play. Any type of donation goes back to investing in the space and making improvements where needed.

Ball-A-Block

Ball-A-Block is our version of the Adopt-A-Block program, but in the process of picking up litter, we are also creating open spaces for public use where Houstonians can play street soccer. Essentially, this is our DIY approach to making use of dilapidated asphalt surfaces and/or concrete structures and flipping them into temporary, pop-up futsal courts for pubic use.

Location

The Block street soccer court is located in at EaDog Park (next to 8th Wonder Brewery) at 2300 Polk St.

Post-Game

We invite everyone to a local restaurant/bar afterward to grab a drink and talk the beautiful game.

Parking

There is parking just in front of the court, but the lot has a lot of potholes so park at your own risk. We recommend parking on Bell St behind the court where you can then walk on the trail up to the court.
