Freestyle football which grew in popularity as an urban underground activity in the 21st century, is described by Wikipedia as the "art of self-expression with a football" that is practiced all over the world.
A form of performance that incorporates breakdance-like moves with juggling and dribbling a football, it is an art, activity, call it what you will, that is taken seriously by new Malaysian.
But two young freestylers have looked beyond it as an art form and have turned into a potentially profitable business idea.
Meet Patrick Tee and Saw Cheng Pheng, the 24-year-old founders of PCfreestyle.
PCfreestyle is a two-man freestyle football team that manages and offers their own talents to perform in stage shows at events, video commercials and also conduct freestyle football workshops.
It was a big decision for Tee and Saw when they decided to leave their full-time jobs in April this year and venture into business. The two friends, who played football as a hobby back in secondary school, first got interested in freestyle football during a trip to Europe about six years ago.
"While we were in Amsterdam, we saw this freestyler juggling a ball and doing tricks with his feet while he was climbing up a lamppost in public," said Tee, who previously worked as an auditor. He is an ACCA affiliate with over two years of experience as an auditor.
They were very amazed by the act and were inspired to start learning how to do tricks of their own by looking up videos on the internet.
"But it was not easy because we did not have anyone to act as a mentor and teach us. We had to look up everything ourselves and practice on our own," Tee added.
"Because freestyle football is about self-expression, we could only learn a few basic moves in the beginning and it was up to us to customized our tricks and create our own routines," said Saw, a first class degree holder in finance, accounting and management.
