Our Initiatives

GA100

In partnership, LISC and the Atlanta United Foundation (AUF) is launching phase one of a statewide mini-pitch program, with the goal of constructing up to 100 mini-pitches across the state leading into the 2026 World Cup:

  • Phase One
    Construction of 20 mini-pitches in underserved communities in Georgia to increase access to safe sports activities, specifically soccer, for youth in underserved communities across the state
  • Match Funding 
    The grant requires a minimum community local match of one dollar for every AUF dollar (1:1) of up to $75,000

Program Focus

  • To provide low to moderate income neighborhoods and communities in Georgia the financial and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety, and accessibility of local mini-pitch soccer fields
  • Communities must demonstrate safe access to mini pitch fields and youth soccer programming
  • To create anchors for placemaking in Georgia communities through the game of soccer and Atlanta United (the more creative field locations and design, the better!)
