4 WANNA PANNA CONCEPTFollowing the success of the Red Bull Street Style, the freestyle football scene has spread along the Saudi youth and the talent has grown.This year we want to offer the freestylers a new platform that they are already familiar with and have a passion for which is to compete against each other in a game of Panna Football.
5 WANNA PANNA CONCEPTRed Bull Wanna is a type of street football in which fine dribbling counts rather than scoring a goal.Red Bull Wanna Panna will put candidates one facing another on a pitch measuring 6 x 6 metres in quick games lasting 4 minutes.The winner will be the one who manages to outdo his opponent in playing the ball through his legs. In case of a draw, an extra minute is added. If the score remains a draw, a panel of 3 judges will decide on the winner based on control and skills.
7 WHAT IS PANNA?Panna is a Dutch slang word for playing the ball through the legs of your opponents “كوبري”.Panna is a new form of street football that originates from Holland.Unlike football games, Panna is all about individual technique and skills.Players play 1 vs. 1 on a small pitch measuring 6 x 6 meters in quick games lasting 4 minutes each.The winner is the one who scores the most Pannas “dribbling then passing the ball between the legs of your opponent”.
8 WHAT IS PANNAFor the youth, Panna is more than just a football game. Panna is a lifestyle, complete with urban clothing, street slang, hip hop music and streetwise attitudes.The trick is to impose yourself on your opponent without any sign of emotion and without losing a drop of sweat. And all of this with the ever-present pumping hip hop beat in a relaxed atmosphere.Check out this Video of the NK Panna KO, the biggest Panna event right now. Also visit this site for further info.
