Our Mission

The Past vs the Future

There is a need for more efficient and fun player development environment in football.

    What is AirPitch Football?

    Small-sided football games in inflatable pitch boundaries with 1 to 5 players on each team.

    What are the benefits of AirPitch Football?
    Small-sided games increases ball-touches, passing, and scoring. The kids learn to be quick on their feet and to keep the ball moving fast. All modern coaches are using this in the daily training for more effective technical development and kids have been playing it in the streets, parks, and gardens since the beginning of the game.

    “The benefit to training in smaller spaces is you don’t give players time to think." Pep Guardiola, Manager, Man. City
    Why do we use AirPitch systems?
    We did not "invent the wheel", but we did develop a tool that makes the small-sided game-play more fun, intense and inclusive. By separating any normal football field into several AirPitches, we can fit a large number of players at the same time and keep the ball rolling with a minimum of stops in the game. There is no young (or old) player on the planet who does not enjoy playing inside one of these regardless of skill level, gender, or physical challenge.

    Playing more smaller side games in practice and on competitive match days may well be the answer to developing more skilful players in all positions of the pitch." The English FA study March 2022.
    The statistics of AirPitch Football
    Our AirPitch tournaments have an average of 492 players in one day, organized on a regular sized 11aside filed. Statistics shows that the ball keeps in play for 83% of the time and the number of player touches on the ball and goals are many times multiplied compared to traditional formats. The German and English Football Federation have done extensive research on this field and the conclusions are unquestionable.

    "With fewer players and the ball rolling for the full ten minutes due to the fench, each outfielder had a whopping 71 touches on average. The result? Loads of opportunities to practise core skills, both attacking and defending". The English FA study March 2022
    AirPitch Training Environment
    AirPitch football is more than games, we offer an immersive training environment with optional add-ons like corner rebounders, soccer tennis nets, LED light target system and much more. Our clients include Arsenal FC, Manchester United FC, and Manchester City FC, plus hundreds of grassroots clubs.

    Airpitches add variety and excitement to training sessions. They allow for small-sided games and skill-based rotations. The popularity for these among players is evident."

    Mark Rivers, Pre-Academy Manager, Arsenal FC

    Here's what our clients are saying
    • “3v3Uk has been a real good addition to the Manchester United Football Programme. We have really enjoyed hosting various different festivals for teams far and wide. We have seen huge benefits from our children participating in this type of format with lots of 1v1 take ons, lots of ball manipulations, lots of chaotic situations and loads of different combinations and team play. We will continue to develop our connection to Mike and his team, who have all excellently organised and delivered a wonderful learning environment and experience for our children at Manchester United”

Working with Mike and the team at 3v3 UK was fantastic as not only did they provide great operational expertise, but a real passion for delivering an exciting event for the players."
