The U.S. Soccer Foundation, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department and Target have unveiled two new soccer play spaces at Eastwood Park, located in southeast Houston.

The U.S. Soccer Foundation, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department and Target unveiled this week two new soccer play spaces at Eastwood Park, located in southeast Houston.

The grand opening marked the first of 100 soccer play spaces that Target has committed to build in collaboration with the U.S. Soccer Foundation across the country by 2020 as part of a program called ‘Safe Places to Play’.

The soccer spaces support the Foundation’s ‘It’s Everyone’s Game’ campaign, which aims to ensure children in underserved communities can benefit from playing soccer.

“Through soccer, children learn to develop healthier habits, work as a team, and cultivate critical life skills,” Ed Foster-Simeon, President & CEO of the U.S. Soccer Foundation, said in a news release from the Foundation.

According to the news release, Target will provide $6 million to support the Foundation’s efforts to turn underutilized spaces into safe and accessible soccer spaces and increase access to sports-based youth programming.
