In support of the Newark Soccer Initiative – a partnership between the New York Red Bulls, Newark Public Schools, the U.S. Soccer Foundation, and Wells Fargo to build 20 mini soccer play spaces over five years – a new mini-pitch was unveiled at Luiz Munoz Marin School.
The initiative will enable more than 2,500 Newark youth to participate in Soccer for Success, the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s after-school soccer program that delivers positive health and youth development outcomes.
This mini-pitch is particularly significant because it represents the first mini-pitch built with a new and innovative prototype developed by Musco Sports Lighting, a national partner of the U.S. Soccer Foundation. This mini-pitch prototype features a complete system design that incorporates fencing, lighting and goals.
This mini-pitch also marks the latest development in the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s It’s Everyone’s Game national movement to ensure children in underserved communities can enjoy the health and youth development benefits of the game.
