Taking inspiration from the USA and recreating the 3v3 tournament format.
USA is the biggest 3v3 football nation in the world... Not many coaches in Europe knows this perhaps. It was from the American that the founders of 3v3 Europe got the inspiration to create the 3v3 pitch tournament concept we use today. BazookaGoal entrepreneur, Anders Wennesland, came up with the idea in 2004 and launched the first ever 3v3 pitch national tournament called VG cup in Norway. The year after, the concept moved to Denmark were it was renamed 3v3 Jyske Ball which changed the entire landscape of Danish grassroots football. After a few years of 3v3 tournament initiatives in various countries, including UK, France, Greece and Poland, the project came full circle when 3v3 Norway was born in 2011. It quickly grew to become the largest event of its kind worldwide and helped convince the Norwegian FA to introduce official 3v3 match football for the younger age groups. In 2018, we launched 3v3 UK, and the year after, 3v3 Germany. In 2021, we will be represented in 9 countries and counting.
