Media Alert - Who is Canada's best freestyle soccer player?

- 16 of Canada's elite ballers make their way to Toronto for the Red Bull Street Style National Final on November 15 to battle before elite judging crew featuring MLS superstar Dwayne De Rosario -

TORONTO, Nov. 14 /CNW/ - This Sunday (November 15th), the fate of 16 ballers will be determined as they go head-to-head to become Canada's National Red Bull Street Style champion and earn a spot in the World Final in Cape Town, South Africa on April 15 -16. Determining the destiny of these ballers is a panel of celebrity judges: legendary b-boy Benzo from Bag of Trix, Jason De Vos of CBC and former Team Canada captain, and Toronto FC's Player of the Year, Dwayne De Rosario. The competitors, who qualified for the Nationals via regionals in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, will be judged on style, creativity and control.

Red Bull Street Style's rules are as 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 showcasing their most incredible ball tricks to the rhythm of music. But this isn't just for tricks, as competitors are battling towards the same goal: wow the judges, beat their rival and move on to the next round. While it's all flair and fair game during those three minutes, just like soccer there are no hands allowed! Don't miss the action, and get up close and personal with these top skilled athletes as they compete in their ultimate arena.
