Soccer in the Streets is a finalist in this year’s Industry Awards from the World Football Summit. SITS is one of five finalists in the category of Football For Good. Overall, awards will be handed out in eight different categories. The winners will be announced on September 24-25 at the Florida Retiro, in Madrid, Spain.
The World Football Summit is a leading international event organizer with a focus on the football industry. Around the sport, a global industry has emerged creating a sector that is growing at a double-digit rate. WFS provides a platform and a voice for all stakeholders involved, allowing them to meet, discuss, promote and genera business opportunities amongst each other. The WFS has been operating since 2016.
“To be a finalist for this award is an honor,” said Phil Hill, executive director of Soccer in the Streets. “Our success is a credit to our founding partners - the City of Atlanta, MARTA and the Atlanta United Foundation. Without their generous support, we would not be able to conduct all of the great programs that we run nor continue to expand our StationSoccer initiative.”
Other finalists in the Football For Good category include Football United (FUN) from Australia and Myanmar, Fundacion Tiempo de Juego from Colombia, and Africa’s TackleAfrica.
