Rotary Soccer Showcase
Charlotte Rotary Club member Chase Saunders is getting Rotary involved with the newly created Charlotte Region Soccer Initiative. The Charlotte Rotary Soccer Committee supports this initiative alongside the Charlotte Chamber, City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County Parks & Recreation.
Why "Soccer"? It is the world's most popular sport with over 2 billion people participating, fans, hundreds of teams and tens of thousands play and Charlotte is an international city having 154 nations represented. The Mission: All communities in the 60 mile radius Charlotte Region embrace the power of soccer through supporting the healthy benefits of soccer, support plans to bring BIG soccer to Charlotte, support the County to build facilities, support the Charlotte Independence soccer team and support the international business opportunities it can create. How: Create a central website listing game schedules, training opportunities and platform for soccer groups; promote international soccer tournaments, marketing material, promote Rotary USA soccer balls/pins and our Rotary district support of soccer initiatives.
