Passback Program Overview

The Gift of Soccer partnered with the US Soccer Federation to collect new and gently used soccer gear to support the local soccer community.  When we have excess equipment, we funnel through the National Level and support a more global audience.  The program provides for opportunity that allows local soccer families to reach out and connect to their community.  This is a great way to teach children and families how to become self-aware of their fortunes and move to become a more involved member of our communities.

Through the US Soccer Foundation’s Passback Program, new and gently used soccer gear is collected by organizations, teams, clubs and individuals and is redistributed across the globe to help underserved communities play the Beautiful Game. Soccer is a unifying force that brings together people of all ethnicities and has the power to open doors, hearts and minds of those who play.

Since its inception in 2002, the US Soccer Foundation Passback Program has collected and distributed over 794,662 pieces of soccer gear. However, there is always more that can be done. We hope that you can help us reach our ultimate goal of collecting and distributing 1 million pieces of equipment.
