Capital Soccer Classic
Soccer is the game that brings the Washington, D.C. community and the world together. Each year, the U.S. Soccer Foundation hosts the Capital Soccer Classic, a family-friendly charity event, featuring members of Congress and former professional soccer players, to support soccer-based programs that get children in underserved communities off of the streets and into safe environments that encourage physical activity and promote positive life skills.
The 2015 Capital Soccer Classic, presented by NIKE, returned to historic RFK Stadium, and featured an Embassy Tournament, the annual Congressional Match, as well as a Staffer Tournament. Click here to relive the magic of the 2015 Capital Soccer Classic.
