While gathering your things to head to Toyota Park on Saturday night, be sure to scour your bedroom, closets, shoe racks, etc. and bring your lightly used soccer equipment along for the ride.
This weekend's match marks the annual drive for the Passback Program, an initiative spearheaded by the Chicago Fire Foundation, the U.S. Soccer Foundation and Soccer.com. Fans coming to the match are encouraged to stop by Fire Fest prior to kickoff and donate any lightly used uniforms, shin guards, goalie gloves, cleats, cones and balls to local youth programs.
Keep your eyes peeled for the designated Passback donation bin (inside Gate B), donate your equipment and help support the development of the beautiful game among the Chicago community!
For fans with an interest in donating that are unable to attend this weekend's match, visit the Passback Program homepage for information on getting involved or contact Steve Jastrow at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop-off.
