PARTNERSHIP WITH FOOTYMARKET:
“The U.S. Soccer Foundation is excited to partner with FootyMarket to provide players an opportunity to donate their gently used soccer equipment. Together through our Passback program, we can create greater access to the game by redistributing soccer equipment to children living in underserved communities who may not be able to afford the gear needed to play the game. ”
