Like last year’s CONCACAF-inspired efforts in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, the Champions League quarterfinals provide not only an opportunity to showcase world-class soccer, but also a chance to celebrate the game’s inherent power as a catalyst for positive change.
Once again Sounders FC is teaming up with Seattle International Foundation (SIF) to send fans to Mexico City to participate in community-building activities leading into the Sounders FC Champions League quarterfinal match versus Club America.
Sounders FC and SIF will work locally with Street Soccer Seattle and abroad with Street Soccer Mexico to reinforce each organization’s collective mission to leverage the game of soccer to empower homeless youth. Outreach efforts will include youth clinics in Seattle and Mexico City, as well as financial commitments to support long-term community interventions in each region. Former Sounders FC star and Mexican International Gonzalo Pineda will be on hand in Mexico City to inspire youth clinic participants.
Sounders FC is seeking passionate soccer fans and global citizens to join in these efforts and win a trip of a lifetime.
