As icing on the cake, we at WSF arranged that the legendary Sean Garnier came to present. He brought a good vibe with him and of course had fun facts as a legend.


The brains behind the WSF event, Danijel Ribaric and organizer, Stefan Molendijk look back with pride and enthusiasm as they look back at the hundreds of participants and their skills. Shout out to the sponsors of the WSF who have made all this possible by providing a stage for the different disciplines of street football.

Panna Knock Out is growing fast. The community is getting bigger and bigger: physically it was not what we expected due to Corona, but online reach of millions has been achieved through the various social media channels.

Our goal to get young people to play street football makes miles in sixth gear. “” With street football you get many positive life lessons that you can use in your growth as a person, including perseverance to get the most out of your life. A good example is Achmed Rakaba who went to play Panna as a refugee from Libya in Germany, now has a residence permit and a contract with a sportswear brand, “said Stefan Molendijk and Danijel Ribaric.

See you next year!
