This summer Washington DC is host to a unique “sport for social change event,” when about 200 homeless soccer players from across the country compete for the Street Soccer USA Championship 2010 at Kastles Stadium — and Reston Limousine is proud to support the event by providing transportation!
Street Soccer USA, a national nonprofit, uses the sport of soccer to help improve the lives of homeless men and women around the country. The group’s signature event will take place from July 30 to Aug. 1 in fast-paced, 4 versus 4 street soccer action. This year, 22 teams from 19 cities including a social project from Russia will take part.
The event includes exhibition matches, live entertainment, and thousands of cheering fans and volunteers from the local and national communities — all for a social purpose: 75% of participants secure jobs, housing, or pursue further education after participating in the program, according to Street Soccer USA.
The nonprofit group will select from among the participants the U.S. National Team, who will travel to the Homeless World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in September.
