The first of the two qualifying matches will take place Friday, October 6, when the Americans host Panama in Orlando. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is hosting a watch part as part of Futbol Friday that night at the Ukrainian American Sport Center in Horsham.
The watch party will include an outdoor screen, access to food and beverages, and a raffle. Entertainment starts at 4:00 PM. All proceeds from the event will go to Red Card Cancer, a soccer-based cancer charity. The watch party also coincides with the Ukrainian Nationals Columbus Cup, which raises money for the Fox Chase Cancer Center, an organization Red Card Cancer supports.
The watch party will culminate the third annual Futbol Friday, when Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer encourages everyone to wear a soccer jersey and donate money to Red Card Cancer. Over the last two years, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer has raised more than $20,000 in support of Red Card Cancer. The state association hopes to exceed that total this year.
If you cannot attend the watch party, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer still encourages you to participate in Futbol Friday by wearing a soccer jersey and making a donation. A $10 donation can be made by texting “SOCCER” to 52000. If you wish to donate more than $10, text “SOCCER” and the amount (i.e. SOCCER 50) to 91011.
