MOST COMMENTED

The U.S. Soccer Foundation recently provided over $100,000 of support to eight Gulf Coast soccer organizations through the Soccer United Recovery Fund (SURF). These community-based organizations are located in areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas that were severely impacted by hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma.

The Foundation established the Soccer United Recovery Fund in October 2005, in partnership with Eurosport, to help rebuild soccer programs and facilities in Gulf Coast communities affected by the massive storms. In the six months that have followed, the Foundation has awarded more than $180,000 in Recovery Fund grants to over two dozen soccer organizations in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

Included in the awards made is the fourth major distribution of soccer goals and equipment to organizations in the Gulf states, which includes: Mississippi -- Bay Area Youth Soccer (Bay St. Louis), Biloxi Soccer Organization, George Greene Soccer Association (Lucedale), Laural Jones County Soccer Association, Poplarville Soccer Club (Poplarville), and South Mississippi Soccer Club (Gulfport); in Louisiana -- ISLANO, an Adult Soccer Club in New Orleans; and in Texas -- Gulf Coast Youth Soccer Club in Nederland (near Port Arthur), which marks the first Soccer United Recovery Fund grant in Texas.
