The Black Star Initiative has been developed by For Soccer Ventures to help accelerate the growth of soccer in the Black American community at the grassroots level, on and off the field. Recognizing the Black community's unique needs and the factors that have contributed to the underrepresentation of Black people in soccer, our initiative is designed to:

  • Improve access and opportunities in the game for the underserved

  • Address systemic racism in the sport

  • Facilitate educational and professional pathways

  • Increase awareness and credibility of soccer amongst the Black community

  • Celebrate and amplify the diverse Black soccer culture
