New York City is a place rich in cultural diversity; with residents from every country in the world. This makes NYC the ideal place to host the New York City WORLD CUP 2010!!
Our mission is to bring together, through soccer, people from every gender, ethnic background, faith, and culture. This beloved game surpasses barriers and is played by millions around the world. This is why we want to bring the World Cup a bit closer to home!
PICKUP SOCCER NYC / PSNYC is a co-ed recreational community soccer organization holding open soccer games year-round (Spring, Summer, Winter & Fall) several days a week at prime playing fields all across NYC. The group is open to ALL skill levels. Our membership is diverse and composed of a broad base of international (and American) players of all ages (players must be at least 18 years of age), backgrounds and nationalities, and from beginner to ex-pro. Attendance is optional and, once signed up, members can attend as many or few games as desired. Many members of this group are die-hard avid soccer lovers & fans, live eat and breathe soccer... regardless ALL come together around the common love of the sport no matter the skill level & play together for fun!
PSNYC also has a Youth Outreach & Coaching Division that holds skills clinics, after-school clinics, and several other special projects each year for inner-city NYC youth, which many of our players volunteer for. It is a fun program for local area youth, designed to build positive interaction, teamwork and friendship! Our outreach program is partnered with several organizations including the New York Red Bulls and the United States Soccer Foundation, enhanced by the support and generous donations of several local sponsors.
