Soccer Without Borders and the Tiyya Foundation are teaming up to host a Charity Soccer Tournament in Fullerton on June 29th. The 7-a-side tournament hopes to raise funds for their year-round soccer camps that benefit refugee children in Southern California.

Soccer Without Borders is a national organization that uses soccer as a way to create positive change for under-served youth. The LA chapter works in conjunction with the Tiyya Foundation, an organization based out of Orange County that helps to provide basic necessities for immigrant and refugee families in Southern California.

The tournament will be at Hydraflow USA in Fullerton from 10am-5pm on Saturday the 29th. If you are interested in registering, please go here to set up your team. All funds necessary to register your team will go directly to the organization to help in their year-round camps and activities. If you are interested in donating, please send an e-mail to the chapter: LosAngeles@SoccerWithoutBorders.org.
