From the desk of Jeremy Goldberg…
Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues,
I am pleased to share with you some BIG news!. In partnership with FUNDaFIELD and Sport Court, we are pleased to announce that Uganda will now be the home to an official Street Soccer Pitch. This is the first Street Soccer pitch of its kind, and it will be located in Northern Uganda. This will be a space for community engagement, soccer tournaments, educational programs, and income-generating activities.
We could not have done this without the long hours and months of support and interest by a variety of individuals and colleagues, from FUNDaFIELD who builds fields for youth and kids in Africa, Sport Court’s incredible, state-of the art modular surfacing, Street Soccer USA and Africa Sports Outreach.
In addition, through the help of our staff in Uganda, and through the efforts of volunteers in-country and soon to be headed to Uganda, we will further realize this dream in Northern Uganda… that as Kevin Carroll Katalyst says, “A ball can change your life.”
We look forward to hearing from you. Appreciate your support and feedback, and commitment to the efforts of the global sports for social change movement. And, of course, stay tuned, there will be updates as the pitch is developed over the coming months. The official inauguration of the pitch will take place early this summer!
