This year's 4-v-4 tournament is divided into five divisions based on age - 17 & up, U-16, U-14, U-12, and U-10 - with divisions for both men and women. The entrance fee is $150 per team, with each team needing at least four players and no more than six. Every registered team will receive a registration package including six tickets to an RSL game and a CALLE Premero Ball and cinch sack. The adult men's and women's division champion will receive a cash prize, while the youth champions will receive CALLE gear.

CALLE was founded in 2006 by a group of college students who came from soccer passionate countries around the world. They started CALLE to promote soccer throughout the neighborhoods of the United States at the street level, playing on asphalt and using trashcans as goals. The field dimensions are 60 to 70 feet long and 40 to 50 feet wide. Each game is only twenty four minutes long, with no halftime, no offside, and unlimited substitutions.
