Do you remember the first time you put on your new team jersey and walked with your team onto the field? Remember that amazing feeling? We do. And, we aim to give that same feeling to kids in the developing world. Actually, YOU do it when you collect used soccer gear for us to distribute at our soccer tournaments or when you donate to Eurosport (SOCCER.com) and the US Soccer Foundation PASSBACK program.
Your donation of used gear, allows us to provide each team with soccer jerseys and more. It's impossible to describe the feeling that our FUNDaFIELD team feels as we distribute team gear to kids who have never been part of a team or had a jersey before.
But how can you play soccer without a ball? Lucky for us, there is One World Futbol. We are thrilled to partner with One World Futbol to deliver balls that, unlike other balls, are virtually impossible to destroy. When you play on terrain that is not perfect, with rocks and broken glass, balls are easily popped and destroyed. A One World Futbol is nearly impossible to deflate and destroy and the balls can be used over and over and over....

Soccer is a unifying force that brings people together for the love of a common passion. Eurosport believes in the uniting power of soccer and wants to assist those who love the game but are unable to play. Through the Passback program, they have encouraged organizations and individuals to collect new and gently used soccer equipment for redistribution to children in need. To date, Eurosport has collected and redistributed close to 900,000 pieces of soccer equipment to organizations across the world.
The One World Futbol
The Virtually-Indestructible Ball
Virtually-Indestructible. Unlike any inflatable ball on the market, the One World Futbol never needs a pump and never goes flat, even if punctured. The ball is made using state-of-the-art technology that requires no stitching and is designed to have the same rebound characteristics as a traditional soccer ball.
All-terrain. The One World Futbol is ideal for any playing surface, not just grass or regulation soccer fields: on grass, on dirt, or even on a rocky field. The ball can withstand the harshest conditions without deflating.
Sustainability. The ultra-durability of the One World Futbol eliminatws the waste of discarded, punctured soccer balls. In Africa alone, 20 million deflated balls make their way into trash heaps every year.
