about LA FINCA

La Finca Futbol is dedicated to inspiring real futbol in the United States.


We want to see the beautiful game played here because we love futbol and it pains us that the US has not contributed its variant to the beautiful tapestry of this timeless, international sport.   

We know that's harsh.


The more than 800 Major League Soccer professionals are all incredible athletes. But our league is ranked 10th in the world, and our national team around 13th! And we think this is because so few of our players play the beautiful game. The US has historically rewarded physicality over artistry and our game has suffered because of it.


Strength, speed and force can win youth soccer matches; they are not the qualities of real futbol.

And so, our solution is to teach soccer technique to kids first, to make them competent players before teaching them the game. One or two high-level players won't create the futbol culture we so desperately need. 


The US' conventional youth soccer programs do not teach skill development. It's not entirely our fault. The rest of the world doesn't start with basic skills either so there is no model for this, but that's because it's not necessary for kids growing up in healthy futbol cultures, where the kids learn them on their own! 


We're familiar with the popular explanations of America's poor standing in international soccer, there are too many competing sports, it's just not part of our culture, we don't pay the player's enough, it's not commercial-friendly, no pro-rel, and the list goes on. None explain why our top players just aren't that good.


By raising up a generation of high-skilled, futbol artists, we will deliver the talent needed for the US to finally develop a style of play all its own, despite all of its structural quirks and anomalies, and one capable of competing on the world's stage. 

We welcome everyone to check us out, ask us questions -- we love to talk futbol -- and most importantly, we hope you'll come play.
