Neymar Jr.’s Five is the global five-a-side football tournament created by Brazilian and Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar Jr. with an unconventional gameplay.
There are only three rules applied on the pitch; each match will last only 10 minutes, there is no goalkeeper, and whenever a team scores, the opposition loses a player making the game fast, technical, and fun. When the whistle blows, the team with the most players standing wins the match.
