MTJ Sports partners up with US Soccer Foundation & City of Chicago

MTJ Sports partners up with US Soccer Foundation and City of Chicago on a 5 Year Program for 75 New Soccer Mini-Pitches in Chicago starting 2018 through 2022.

This is part of the US Soccer Foundation's Safe Places to Play The program will transform abandoned courts, empty schoolyards, vacant lots and the like into state-of-the-art soccer fields for kids.The Foundation awards grants three times a year to underserved communities to help cover the costs of lighting, irrigation, construction, surfacing and enhancement.

For communities where space is at a premium, Safe Places to Play developed what we call the mini-pitch. These are small, customized areas perfectly suited for organized soccer programs and pick-up games. Mini-pitches provide a quality playing surface for kids. They also transform the look and feel of neighborhoods.

12 selected sites in Chicago will start mini-pitch transformation by MTJ Sports in April of 2018 receiving new hard courts by Laykold Masters Coating Systems
