On May 3, 2014, thousands of children of all ages will set a world record for The Biggest Pick-Up Game on Earth in a one-day soccer pick-up event in over 100 communities, from New York to Hawaii. As part of AYSO’s 50th anniversary celebration, #SoccerFEST14, presented by DOLE Fruit Squish’ems®, will make soccer history across hundreds of U.S. soccer fields with tens of thousands of participants playing soccer, showing off their soccer moves, having fun, making new friends and enjoying a great day of sports and activity.
“We want everyone to join us at the #SoccerFEST14 in their community, not only to set a world record but to participate in a day filled with fun, action, family, friends and soccer,” said Lynn Berling-Manuel, AYSO’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Since its inception in 1964, AYSO has always been an open and inclusive youth sports organization following the philosophy that Everyone Plays®. Through soccer, AYSO continues to build strength, leadership, skills, sportsmanship and healthy active lifestyles for children and their families.”
