Concacaf links with America SCORES with help of World Football Remission Fund

June 6 – US non-profit America SCORES that provides free after-school programming combining soccer, poetry, and service-learning, has launched an initiative with Concacaf and the FIFA Foundation in Miami.

Miami SCORES Powered by Concacaf will see the Scores soccer and literacy program rolled out in six public schools in the city in the first year and several more thereafter.

Miami will be the 13th city in the US running a Scores programme that sees 15,000 students annually through its initiatives.

Concacaf General Secretary Philippe Moggio (pictured), said: “At Concacaf, we believe in the power of soccer – or football as we call it – to inspire and uplift communities. The launch of Miami SCORES Powered by Concacaf is a testament to our commitment to supporting youth development through this beautiful game. We are proud to partner with America SCORES to bring this impactful program to Miami’s young people.”

Concacaf’s support for Miami Scores is in partnership with the FIFA Foundation, with funding made available by the World Football Remission Fund, which distributes the money collected from the US Department of Justice’s FIFAgate cases.

America SCORES International Executive Director Icy Jones exclaimed, There could not be a better moment in time to launch our Miami affiliate, especially as America SCORES celebrates its 30th anniversary as a legacy organization of the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The launch of Miami SCORES Powered by Concacaf represents the culmination of three decades of community impact and trust across North America.”
