Earth Day Soccer Classic
Earth Day Soccer Classic - 6v6 CoRec Tournament
ASU's School of Sustainability, Green Living Magazine, Tempe Sister City,
Sun Devil Fitness Complex, and One World Futbol, have joined together to present a bi-continental, co-ed soccer tournament to coincide with 2014 Earth Day celebrations. The tournament brings the world together, one soccer game at a time, as it takes place simultaneously in Ghana, Africa, our World Cup opponents in June.
Earth Day Soccer Classic will showcase Royal Philips' solar-powered soccer fields, which are enabling African kids to play at night for the first time. You'll also experience One World Futbol's nearly indestructible soccer balls. Proceeds from the tournament will be used to donate balls to soccer clubs in Accra, Ghana.
