Safe Places to Play

Giving Kids a Place to Call Their Own

We believe that every child should have a safe place to play soccer right in their neighborhood. But we know that too many kids, especially those living in underserved communities, don’t have easy access to soccer fields or facilities. That’s why we’re transforming underutilized areas, like vacant lots and empty schoolyards, into state-of-the-art pitches to play the game.

Our mini-pitches provide an innovative solution for communities where space is at a premium. These small, customized, hard-court surfaces are perfectly suited for organized soccer programs and pick-up games. Complete with lighting, fencing, goals, benches, and more, mini-pitches provide a quality playing surface for kids and adults.

OUR COMMITMENT

create 1,000 mini-pitches nationwide.

OUR GRANT PROGRAM

We also award grants three times a year to help cover the costs of lighting, irrigation, construction,
surfacing, and enhancements. These upgrades to existing spaces revitalize communities and make
playing our game more accessible to all.
