WSF 2019 powered by Aktiesport

The legendary World of Street Football (WSF) tournament returned to its hometown Rotterdam on the 14th & 15th of September 2019. The event was a not-to-be missed part of the Rotterdam Street Culture and has been powered by our partner Aktiesport.

Saturday September 14th the Panna Knock Out World Championships were held for the youth up to the age of 16. Jassim Maz from Belgium has won the title for U-16 against another baller from Belgium, Omar Makhlouf. In addition, a new Panna Knock Out format has been tested with 16 world class players, the Panna Pro League. The game consisted of a maximum of 3 rounds of 1 minute where it was all about humiliating your opponent by showing the craziest skills with the ultimate knockout; the Panna. Anas Boukami defeated Pannahouse Invitationals world champion Ahmed Rakaba with a dope backwards Panna.

On Sunday 15/9, international players from more than 20 different countries competed for the title at the Panna Knock Out World Cup. The final went between Japanese Takuto Koguro and Dutchman Abdollah Combito. Both players have never played before the final of a World Cup. Takuto eventually became the lucky winner.

During the WSF, the audience of Rotterdam was treated with a performance of rapper Kevin, where he performed not only his own hits, but also the Panna Knock Out-anthem “Kilometers”. In addition the legendaryS3 freestyle team and their frontman Sean Garnier gave an crazy Urban show before the final of the Freestyle Knock Out Championships!
