Soccer for All of the Community

Soccer has always been a game for the people. Anyone is able to take a ball, bought or handmade, and get friends together to play. This accessibility and ease of entry has made it the world’s game. It forges strong connections between people, bringing together individuals and communities, and most importantly, it’s fun and entertaining. You can go anywhere in the world and talk about a soccer match with a local or find a pickup game to play in.

SaveTheCrew – Hardest Working Weekends

For many people in Columbus, Saturday and Sunday are the weekend. Days off. Days to relax, reflect on the week, and enjoy time with family and friends.

On Saturday morning, several volunteers woke up early to spread the world to Columbus’ Hispanic community at the Westland Flea Market on W. Broad Street. Volunteers raffled off tickets to an upcoming game and shared information about Project 2019 and all the latest news from SaveTheCrew — todo en español.

En un corto tiempo éste popular deporte se ha convertido en parte de nuestra vida cotidiana, ahora les explico el por qué:
