(Miami, FL March 11, 2019) – Today, March 11, City of Miami leaders and partners Target and the U.S. Soccer Foundation will cut the ribbon on a new mini soccer facility at Juan Pablo Duarte Park, located in the heart of Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood. The new, two-pitch mini soccer facility was made possible in large part by a contribution from Target and the work of the U.S. Soccer Foundation, which managed construction of the new pitches.
Miami City Commissioner Wifredo (Willy) Gort and City of Miami Parks & Recreation Department leaders will join representatives from both organizations this afternoon at 4:00pm to cut the ribbon at the new facility. As part of the collaboration between the City of Miami and the U.S. Soccer Foundation, Soccer for Success, the Foundation’s after-school soccer program, will also be implemented at the facility. The program has been proven to help children develop critical life skills through trained coach-mentors, providing a direct benefit to the community.
