Brand-spanking new and equipped with fresh AstroTurf, Evolve Soccer has it all. Youth and adult soccer training programs, soccer training camps, pick-up games (both adult and youth), league play, and more are all on the table.
Evolve Soccer prides itself on its ‘Evolve Intercity Tournament’, an indoor soccer competition open to 8 regional teams throughout Los Angeles. On top of that, the facility has a real knack for training classes — classes cover every age and skill level group.
A newcomer to the LA pickup soccer scene, Evolve Soccer LA just recently added a series of adult indoor soccer pickup games. There’s no youth option yet, but keep an eye out for future scheduling changes.
In a bizarre twist of fate, the cost to attend a pickup game here is $11 a session. You know that feeling when gas prices are stable at $3.00 a gallon and then suddenly, someone decides to up it to $3.01? That’s what happened here.
Indoor soccer pickup games are usually $5 or $10, occasionally $15. But here, Evolve Soccer decided to tack on that extra dollar. Maybe it’s for the looks?
Either way, check out the booking information here. And make sure to reserve your spot early as you can — Evolve oftentimes has a full house.
Evolve Soccer’s pickup games are 5-on-5.
At $11 a pop, the games don’t come cheap. The attitude in the facility is fairly serious, but everyone is there for the same reason — they want to have a good time.
The games are co-ed, open to players of all skill levels, and are really just a great way to play some soccer during the week in a low-stress environment.
As of December 2018, Evolve Soccer LA has added even more pickup soccer games to the schedule. You can enjoy games:
Registration closes 6:00 pm on the day of the match, so don’t wait till the last minute!
This indoor soccer facility offers a Youth Soccer League, Adult Soccer League, and pick-up games. If you’re someone looking for casual play, this is a great choice. The facility is right off the Santa Monica Freeway, so it’s plenty accessible.
Hours of operation make it easy to play (3pm-12am weekdays, 8am-12am weekends).
Unfortunately for those looking for pickup games, Futebol Indoor Soccer Facility is mainly geared towards events that rent the field or league play. There isn’t anything in the way of pickup game support, but with the right platform, you and your friends could rent a field for your own games.
You’re out of luck for pickup games, but booking information is easily accessible. Give the owners a call at (323) 599-2769 to organize group play and field rental. The facility offers very generous opening hours (open till midnight every day is hard to find elsewhere), so it’s not a bad idea to sit down and see if you have enough players to rent a field.
You’ll be renting the field on your own terms, so feel free to make the games 5×5 or 7×7.
Futebol Indoor Soccer Facility’s games are social through-and-through. Remember, this is more of a place where you can rent an indoor field compared to a fully-fledged soccer center, so don’t expect a whole lot of organization from the management.

While there is a league at this facility, the overall impression by attendees is that you’ll find better leagues elsewhere. Use Futebol Indoor Soccer Facility for events like birthday parties or private indoor soccer matches — it’ll be better than trusting the in-house league.
That said, management does offer both Youth and Adult soccer leagues if you’re in a pinch.
There are warehouses that happen to have indoor soccer games, and then there’s UrbanFutsal LA — this is a premium-grade warehouse facility dedicated to all things futsal. Beautiful urban art on the walls, two full futsal courts, and a DJ booth make UrbanFutsal LA the place to go.
They offer weekly meetup pick-up games, soccer training courses, and league play. On top of that, a killer sound system and lighting setup make UrbanFutsal LA a landmark in the California indoor soccer scene.

Every match is co-ed, which makes it easier to get games going.
Adult pickup games are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Once you sign up, you’re guaranteed to play 4 games in any given 1.5 hour session, which is pretty great.

It’s dead simple to RSVP for their adult co-ed indoor 5v5 pickup games (you can even choose the time slot you want, 7pm or 8:30pm) and you’re guaranteed play time. 4 games a per person per session is a lot of futsal, and you’ll want to take rests to enjoy the rest of the facility.
Yep! For adults, you’re looking at:
UrbanFutsal LA offers two competitive leagues:
Each Division consists of 6 teams. The costs for the 2019 Adult Winter League are $850 for an 8 week season + Playoffs. Each team will play once a week. The top 4 teams in each division will advance to the playoffs to compete for the semi-final and championship cup.
If you’re looking for indoor Bubble Soccer, this may be the place for you. Perfect for birthday parties (and always offering discounts on Groupon, it seems), Indoor Soccer Center is a great place for anyone wanting to let off a little steam. Watch out for the lack of air conditioning though, as those bubble ball suits get pretty hot.
Couple all that with some awesome staff and you can see why a visit to this facility won’t go amiss.
Indoor Soccer Center is a great choice for pickup games. There’s no need to have a premade team or anything like that — the facility prides itself on just having players show up and play. The games last for one hour and all ages are welcome to play.
Games are not as cheap as some other options, but you’re looking at substantially more playtime (one-hour matches). The costs range from $15-25 per player, depending on the time of the match.
Booking information is available online here, but it’s worth a phone call to make sure everything is up-to-date.
All pickup games are 5×5 (as are the competitive league games). It’s possible to have larger games, but the staff like to keep it at 5×5 for safety reasons.
There is no need for reservations or premade teams, so the pickup games tend to be very social. If you’re looking for a more competitive environment, consider Indoor Soccer Center’s league play. But if you’re interested in drop-in pickup games, it’s hard to beat the location and amenities offered by this facility.
One of the real benefits of this style of pickup game is that the matches last a long time. An hour of playtime means an hour of on-pitch play — that’s a lot! It may not be as organized as other facilities in terms of setting up the matches before your arrival, but the high amount of playtime and the communal atmosphere makes it a great choice.
There are no officially scheduled games by the facility, but the Sunday timeslot almost always has a match. Sundays from 7pm to 9pm are the most common times to find a game — there’s almost always a game to join. Of course, there’s always the opportunity to rent a field and schedule your own match ahead of time, just let the staff know.
