This past April, the Plei App expanded into a new market: Denver, Colorado! The first facility that we have partnered with is Denver Soccer Society, and we are looking to continue hosting pickup games there for many years to come. As part of our new blog series, we will be highlighting all of our partner facilities in every region where Plei has touched down.
Their website says it best:
Denver Soccer Society was born out of a dream to experience social soccer in a way the rest of the world does — outside, fast-paced and in the heart of the city.
It’s safe to say that this is precisely what they’ve achieved. This world-class soccer facility opened in August 2021 and has been providing Denver footy lovers with a refreshing and innovative soccer experience - all with breathtaking views of the city skyline.
Located in the heart of downtown Denver, this outdoor venue boasts two high-quality turf fields equipped for 5v5 games. These fields were built from the ground up - literally. DSS is located in a spacious parking lot and each 60 x 100 field was installed with high-end padding and artificial turf - directly on top of the asphalt. It’s almost as if the designers were playing a city-builder game and chose to install a soccer facility in an empty parking lot as their next venture.
Oh, and we can’t forget to mention that the facility is only 0.6 miles from Empower Field, the home of the Denver Broncos and Denver Outlaws.
Whether you’re pulling up for a Plei game or to socialize, just know that you can’t go wrong. Hang out and watch your friends - or make some new ones, on or off the field.
The facility is equipped with bleachers facing the fields so don’t hesitate to bring as many guests as you desire to watch you bang in a hat-trick or two.
DSS host their very own leagues and tournaments year-round, and their annual 8-week Coed and Men’s leagues are coming up this October. What’s really cool about these leagues is that the standings, schedules, rosters, stats and photos/videos for each participating team are all available online to the public! Talk about professionalism.
Every last inch of DSS’s 14,000 square feet of space is available for rent. You can host tailgate parties, birthday parties, corporate events, - anything! Go onto their website for more details and for pricing.
The rules at Denver Soccer Society are simple: wear whatever shoes you want. You heard right. Cleats, turfs or flats are all welcome.
5-a-side of course means four field players and one goalkeeper, meaning tons of touches for everyone.
And finally, when the ball goes out of play, you kick it back in, which is pretty standard when it comes to small-sided soccer. No sliding, and you can score from anywhere on the field.
