Making Soccer More Accessible

We recently unveiled a new Safe Places to Play mini-pitch as part of the Newark Soccer Initiative with our partners New York Red Bulls, Newark Public Schools, and Wells Fargo. Our national partner, Musco Lighting, unveiled an innovative mini-pitch system, which features lighting that extends playing time for children.
