In recent years, the 4v4 method has rapidly increased in popularity
however this method is certainly not a new one.
4 v 4 Small Sided Games (SSG’s) PDF

The method was introduced by the Dutch Football Association back in
the 1980’s under the guidance of Rinus Michel’s, the creator of total
football. The Dutch recognised the decline in street football and the
damaging effects it would have on developing players in future
generations. This is how the 4v4 method was born and it’s widely
known as “the Dutch way”
In this manual there are over 60 different 4v4 games. The games are
tried and tested with both grassroots beginners and top youth players
in professional academies. The games are designed to stimulate the
players and lead them down a path of learning – all part of guided
discovery. These games bring the 4v4 concept into a new era and will
develop your players in a fun, player led environment.
Below is a list of benefits for the 4v4 method
