MLS clubs are using June to showcase their efforts throughout the league to foster more inclusive communities. According to Beyond Sport, Soccer For All represents “MLS’ commitment to end discrimination and showcase the collective efforts taking place throughout the league to drive positive social change.” The league is providing an environment for all staff, players and fans to be treated with dignity and respect, and all are embraced regardless of religion, race or color.
MLS players will wear Soccer For All shirts, with the proceeds of these shirts going to MLS Works partners. In addition, Soccer for All will be promoted on social and digital channels in order for fans to join in on the conversation. Local activation will focus on celebrating the diversity of MLS players and fans, Special Olympics Unified Sports Soccer matches, diversity workshops for student athletes, coaches and administrators through RISE, LGBTQ Pride Nights, and other events.
