Soccer is more than just a fun, popular worldwide sport. Soccer can effect a positive social change that allow us to cross all geographic, ethnic and religious boundaries.
Soccer is unique, it’s a universal language that can bring everyone together regardless of their differences.
It’s fairly safe to assume almost everyone knows of, played or has watched a game of soccer. We’ve followed our teams for a lifetimes, enjoyed rivalries and watched super-stars score magic goals, but rarely do we hear about the more important values and the ability for soccer to effect positive social change.
Soccer brings people together, it encourages teamwork and teaches people important life lessons about hard work, dedication and relying on others. Perhaps more importantly, soccer can help to keep kids off the streets and away from drugs and violence.
