50 mini-pitches. 36,000 youth in soccer programs. By 2030.
It’s happening! Thanks to a $5M gift from Citadel founder and CEO Kenneth C. Griffin and additional investment from the Children’s Trust, we are creating 50 mini-pitches across Miami-Dade County and launching the Just Ball League in the fall.
This marks the first investments in the newly created $10M Miami-Dade Soccer Initiative, which will dramatically increase opportunities for children living in under-resourced communities across the region.
The launch event was held at Villas Del Lago, the home of a future mini-pitch and part of the Ten North Group’s real estate holdings (formerly the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation).
