Based on Epistemologies of the South perspective, this Thesis brings to the field of political-epistemological discussions the Fútbol Callejero (FC). Originated in 2001, at neighborhood Moreno (Buenos Aires-Argentina) it was configured as a methodology of Popular Education when Argentina was going through a deep economic crisis, with impoverished youths being the most affected. Keeping this scenario in mind, popular educator and former soccer player Fábian Ferraro identified the potential of football to bring youth together. His proposal sought to enable participants to incorporate dialogue as a practice for conflict resolution, as well as to encourage their protagonism in the process of fighting for their rights and interests. Thus, the Callejera Methodology present teams composed by boys and girls (mixed); matches played in three periods; the participants make agreements on the rules that will guide each match; in addition to the goals, points are also assigned to attitudes related to Respect, Cooperation and Solidarity (the "pillars" of the FC) and, finally, the replacement of a referee by a Mediator whose function is to facilitate dialogue and reflection about the actions related to each one of the Pillars of the FC to establish collective agreement on the final score of the match. With this knowledge we guided our investigation on FC that was driven in the context of a socio-educational project developed with children and teenagers living in inner city and impoverished neighbourhoods of São Carlos city (countryside of São Paulo state, Brazil). From the qualitative perspective of the Systematization of Experiences method, interfacing with Analética and Phenomenological Reduction we proceeded to participate and register the experience, which occurred in the period between August 2016 and January 2017, in addition to two meetings in December 2017. On those occasions, we participated as educator-researchers, coordinating the mediation moments of FC and diversified experiences on playful motricity (play/ócio/leisure). We documented the experience in 15 field notes that had the full transcription of the participant speeches through video recordings. Our main objective was to identify and comprehend the educational processes emerged from the practice of FC, and the moments that the logic of evaluation of the Pillars inspired the analysis of the coexistence between the participants during the diversified playful motricity. Our process of data analysis culminated in the identification of 3 categories: A) Fútbol Callejero is awesome! B) Callejero’s Care; C) When Callejero is more than football. Based on the analysis, our Thesis is that Fútbol Callejero (born and raised in Argentina - geographical and metaphorical South) has been configured as a Callejera Motricity, emergent and composing Epistemologies of the South, with the potential of being a trans-modern and intercultural project of intervention and acting to articulate against capitalism, patriarchy and colonialism. We hope that our Systematization of Experiences will compose the constellation of knowledge, being able to guide new crossings and new systematizations.
