(名詞) 無聲足球：一種不許觀眾叫喊、歡呼，也不許教練站在場外的足球賽。亦叫做 silent Saturday (or Sunday) soccer, silent sidelines。
I just got back from my nine-year-old daughter's house league soccer game. Her team won — 3 to 1. But we parents were to keep our enthusiasm to polite clapping. This is "silent soccer" week — no coaxing, cheering or sideline coaching from coaches allowed.

No yells, screams or even cheers are to be heard from the sidelines and benches at house-league soccer games in Aurora, Ont., this week.
Instead, only clapping is allowed.
So-called silent soccer has been embraced by the Aurora Youth Soccer house league and has taken hold with a handful of clubs and leagues in Canada and other countries.
