Passback

It takes just one soccer ball to change the life of a child
and just one jersey to give a child a sense of belonging.

Passback collects and redistributes soccer equipment to children in underserved communities who love the sport but don’t have the resources to play. People who love soccer are able to recycle their gear and enrich the lives of children.

While the Foundation cannot ship equipment internationally through the Passback program, shipping is available to U.S. organizations that work internationally.

PASSBACK HAS COLLECTED AND REDISTRIBUTED OVER ONE MILLION PIECES OF GENTLY-USED AND NEW EQUIPMENT SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 2002.

FOOTYmarket, an online marketplace for soccer players from around the world to connect and exchange new or pre-owned gear, has designated Passback as its official partner for users looking to donate gently-used gear.

I'm very excited through FOOTYmarket to be partnering with the U.S. Soccer Foundation. Our philosophies are fully aligned in the pursuit of assisting our youth soccer players, providing them support and opportunities to excel on and off the field. I look forward to years of collaboration and successful endeavors.

GIVE THE GAME

You don’t have to give equipment to make a difference. 
With your help, we can give the game of soccer to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to play.
