Beyond the Pitch – August 2018

Soccer for Social Change

U.S. Soccer Foundation President & CEO, Ed Foster-Simeon, sits down with Sheila Hyland of Comcast Newsmakers to discuss the ways in which the Foundation uses soccer as a vehicle for social change.

New Target Play Spaces

During MLS All-Star week, we opened the first of 10 Atlanta Safe Places to Play mini-pitches with Target. These mini-pitches represent the latest development in the Foundation’s It’s Everyone’s Game national movement and another milestone for Target as they help us build 100 mini-pitches nationwide by 2020.
