Urban Hacktivism: The Biggest Football Field in the World

A few days ago, French urban hacktivist Florian Rivière (the guy who installed the fabulous advertising carousel earlier this year) did a Hack your city into a soccer field workshop in Berlin-Kreuzberg!

Soccer is one of the basic ways to reclaim the street. But today cities prevent this practice to facilitate car movements and security. Games or sports are just allowed in specific places: soccer fields, golf courses, skateparks, basketball courts… everything is confined. The aim of this workshop is to look for interstitials urban space where we could play soccer wildly. Because play is a claim of freedom and city is a place for freedom.

The result is this crazy video, documenting the Graffiti Soccer Crew creating the biggest football field in the world!

  1. Ok it is more spraying a football field more than “soccer – reclaiming- the streets!”… To be honest when it comes to sports reclaiming the streets, Urban Golf (not even talking about Parkour) have done it – shame it does not involve spraying as well ;)


  2. nice post, I was collaborating with florian on this project.
    The idea is to create a public map online with the places where goals/fields have been placed. We want to publicize it to create an awareness with the public that soccer is possible anywhere, and not only in pre-coneived confined places.
