TORONTO, Nov. 11 /CNW/ - Heads up! This Sunday (November 15th), Toronto's CBC Atrium will transform into a battleground for 16 of the country's top ballers as they go head to head to claim the title as Canada's best freestyler and earn a spot in the Red Bull Street Style World Finals in Cape Town, South Africa. Red Bull Street Style ( offers the world's best freestyle soccer players the penultimate stage to display their unique flow of control, style and creativity.Over the past few weeks, 14 of Canada's most talented freestyle soccer stars earned their tickets to the National Final by competing in qualifiers that took place in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. Joining the qualifiers from across the country are two wildcard online winners - Montreal's Carlos Dongo-Rejas and Toronto's Patrick Di Lecce - who earned their spots by submitting videos proving that they could step up against Canada's finest freestyle mavericks.

Red Bull Street Style's rules are easy as 3-2-1: three minutes, two players, and one ball form the battleground in which ball control, skill and style are king. The freestylers face off on a special stage, seven metres in diameter, and alternate ball possession every 30 seconds while wowing the judges with their most wicked ball tricks to the rhythm of music, to beat their rival and move on to the next round. It's all fair game during those three minutes, but just like soccer it's no hands allowed! Get up close and personal with these top tricksters as they prepare for their ultimate battle.
