A soccer game of control and passing for the less fleet of foot.
Inspired by the tiki-taka brand of passing and possession popularized by FC Barcelona, Tik1 Taka Soka divides the field into areas where only one player can venture. You can take your time controlling the ball and setting up your pass. But you also can’t venture out of your area. So you’ll need to practice quick strategic passing to move the ball down the field and into the goal.
