Bola ( ) Bola is a CLICKON original documentary about LA’s best street soccer team. Comprised of freestylers and street soccer players from around the globe, this diverse group of athletes has one thing in common: their dedication to bola. Both the title of the film and the name of their team, bola is more than the Spanish word for ball; it’s a lifestyle. Win or lose, they’re a family at the end of the day. They were friends first and a team after, and that’s what allows them to excel on the court; to function as a cohesive unit.
It’s not about a physical soccer ball, it’s what the ball has brought them: the sense of community, the brotherhood, the family, the journeys, the highs, the lows, and everything in between. The story follows their journey to the Neymar Jr. Five Tournament, where they compete with 16 of the best street soccer teams in the country for a shot at the world finals in Brazil.
