The story of how TST began.

In 2020, TBT fans and soccer players Mike Volk and Henry Tembon reached out to TBT Founder Jon Mugar and suggested applying TBT’s high stakes, open-to-all model to soccer.

Together with Alecko Eskandarian and TBT co-founder Dan Friel, they agreed that a 7v7 world championship would be unparalleled in its intensity, competitiveness, and skill level. And The Soccer Tournament (TST) was born.
