What is Samba 5-a-side?
Astro Kings has two types of pitches. Samba 5-a-side and Classic. The difference is in the goals; classic goals are 12ft wide by 4ft high (about waist height) while the samba goals are 6ft high, so it makes a difference to the play, tactics and goals scored where it makes for some spectacular top corner goals. A good keeper helps, but a class forward can make all the difference.
