50 New Mini Soccer Fields Coming to Chicago

Over the next five years, the Chicago Fire, the U.S. Soccer Foundation and the city of Chicago will build 50 mini soccer fields throughout underserved neighborhoods throughout the city thanks to a donation from Illinois billionaire Ken Griffin. In addition to the courts for free play, there will also be afterschool soccer programs, training, and leagues.

It’s great to see the investment in the communities of Chicago and in our sport. Community initiatives like these from MLS and the USSF are important to help grow soccer and build the connection between kids, their parents, and soccer organizations.
