Futbol Friday 2017 Recap & Gallery

red card cancer update updated

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer celebrated Futbol Friday 2017 on Friday, October 6. Futbol Friday is our annual event where we ask friends, family and the greater soccer community to wear their favorite soccer jerseys and donate money to Red Card Cancer, a soccer-based cancer charity.

As part of Futbol Friday, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer hosted a U.S. Men's National Team Watch Party with the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals and attended the Temple University-Southern Methodist University men's soccer match. Several hundred dollars were raised through the two events alone.

The Owls were kind enough to wear "A Cure Is Our Goal" Red Card Cancer t-shirts for parts of warm-ups and pregame ceremonies.

Special distinction should also go to Vereinigung Erzebirge (VE) and Exeter Youth Soccer. VE, for the second year in a row, encouraged all of its members to wear jerseys for Futbol Friday. The club posted a wide-ranging photo gallery on its facebook page. Exeter Youth Soccer did the same with many of its youth players getting involved. The smiles tell the story, and the support is much appreciated.
