THE BIGGEST STREET FOOTBALL SCHOOL IN THE WORLD
WHO ARE WE?
StreetKings, a company active in street football. Now you’re probably wondering; but what do you actually do? We carry out a range of diverse projects. We mainly focus on passing on our passion for street football to the next generations.
We have completed various projects over the years. The foundation was laid by our captain, Edward van Gils. Edward founded StreetKings in 2010. In the following period and to this day, we have organized many events in collaboration with Nike, EA Sports, and Puma, among others. This has allowed us to pass on our passion to many people.
“We want to expand our passion”
Our captain Edward van Gils who is a sponsored Nike athlete, is also known as “the godfather” of contemporary street football. He is a pioneer in this field. He started travelling the world at a young age for large sports brands to display his talent. In addition to being the captain of his own street football team, he is also the captain of football legend Ronaldinho’s street football team (Ronaldinho Globe Street Team). Edward has had many great experiences. For example; TV commercials with Ruud van Nistelrooy, or kicking a ball around with football superstars such as Maradona, Neymar, and Messi.
WHAT DO WE DO?
In our football school, we train children. We do this in our own street football hall. Because of this unique location, children start dealing very differently with the spaces they have available. Children very quickly develop the ability to get out of tight game situations.
We organize frequent events. Our clinics offer people the opportunity to learn from street football world champions.
Audiences always enjoy demonstration matches. Our legends play a match and show off all their skills!
Edward visits schools and associations to tell his full life story. This allows him to inspire children and motivate them to make the right choices. We also do a lot for young people and inmates in order to guide them through sports.

My life story?
Read my book
‘For almost 25 years, I've shown the world what is possible with a ball. In my book, I also show the other side of my world. A boy on the way to the top that had to survive. It was a special, but not an easy road. I share the lessons I learned in my book. The creation of this book was a tough and emotional process, but I’m extremely proud of the result.’
