By bringing activities, equipment, and passion for the game of soccer to Philadelphia and the surrounding communities, Subaru and the Union are partnering to provide opportunities for everyone to experience the greatness of soccer.
GEAR FOR GOOD
The Gear for Good initiative offers sports supplies and soccer equipment to Philadelphia communities that need it most. To date, 700 items from Subaru and its retailers have been donated and distributed throughout the city, along with hundreds of hats and blankets at events like the City Team Chester Block Party.
Subaru Park Camden Mini-Pitch
Together, Subaru and the Union opened the Subaru Park Camden Mini-Pitch. This hard-surfaced youth soccer pitch is located at Camden’s Ralph Williams Memorial Park and provides a safe place for youth to learn, practice, and play soccer. Alongside the creation of the mini-pitch, Subaru seeks out organizations that use soccer to make a positive impact on the community. After witnessing first-hand, the progress that the YMCA of Greater Philadelphia was making through a program called ‘Soccer for Success’, Subaru surprised the YMCA with a donation of $10,000 at the grand opening of Subaru Park Camden Mini-Pitch.
Love Promise Playmakers
Subaru launched the Love Promise Playmakers initiative to celebrate playmakers who have shown a commitment and dedication to serving our local communities off the field. Winners recognized at Philadelphia Union games receive 4 suite tickets for the Subaru Suite as well as an authentic Union jersey with their name and number. More than 36 people, selected by local Subaru retailers, who have made a difference in their community have been honored at Union games.
