Black Players for Change & Black Women’s Player Collective Mini-Pitch Initiative

To provide greater access to soccer for Black children in communities nationwide, the U.S. Soccer Foundation teamed up with Black Players for Change, Black Women’s Player Collective, adidas, and Musco Lighting in 2020. So far, the group has committed to installing 12 mini-pitches by the end of 2021, with the goal of growing the partnership over the years to come. 

Since the start of the partnership, new mini-pitches have been completed in Hawthorne, CA, San Diego, CA, Orlando, FL, Indianapolis, IN, Louisville, KY, and Atlanta, GA.

The initiative is part of BPC’s and BWPC’s efforts to ensure the next generation of Black players have a voice, leadership opportunities, and an equitable stake in the game.
