Safe Places to Play
Mini-Pitches

We want every child to have a safe place to play right in their neighborhood. It’s why we’re committed to creating 1,000 new mini-pitches by 2026.  

Mini-pitches are ideal for urban areas and other communities where finding a safe place to play can be difficult. These small, customized, hard-court surfaces are perfectly suited for organized soccer programs and pick-up games.

THE BENEFITS

Lockable storage, benches and other enhancements provide convenience for players and enable people to watch play unfold.
Brightly colored courts and customizable signage transform the look and feel of communities and allow for community creativity when designing the pitch.
Lighting extends the number of hours kids and adults can play in a day.
ADA-accessible gates and hard-court surface allows for everyone to be able to play on the pitch.
Easily accessible pitches introduce new people to soccer - 30% of mini-pitch users are new to our game.
