AYSO’s 50th Anniversary year has been amazing! We’ve all kept ourselves busy with a float in the Rose Parade®, #SoccerFEST14, a new partnership with FOX Sports 1, a huge National Games and the list goes on. But as we looked at our accomplishments for the year, we noticed a missing piece. An Official Birthday Celebration!
Monday, Sept. 15 is AYSO’s Official Birthday. We have some big plans for it and want all AYSO players, volunteers, fans, families and alumni to join in on the fun!
To get this golden birthday party started, we are asking AYSO fans all over the country to #WearYourAYSO -- wear your AYSO gear with pride on our birthday. This goes for you too parents! Wear your AYSO gear to work, during your workout or just around town running errands. AYSO jerseys, polos, t-shirts…we know you have at least one tucked away in your closet.
Not only will Sept. 15 be a day of solidarity, but we will be giving prizes away all day on our social media sites. Starting at 4:00 a.m. PT through 10:00 p.m., PT (the AYSO community spans from New York to Hawaii, so we want to cover every time zone) we will be giving one prize out every hour. It’s simple to participate too. Just wear your AYSO gear on Sept. 15, take a photo of yourself and post it on your personal Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram account with the hashtag #WearYourAYSO.
50 years in is an amazing feat. Won’t you help us celebrate hitting the BIG 5-0! Make sure to tell all of your friends to join in too.
