What is a SoccerFEST? In short, it’s a pick-up game for youth soccer players. To celebrate AYSO’s 50th Anniversary, AYSO set a world record with the biggest pick-up game on earth! More than 100 AYSO communities all across the country—from New York to Hawaii—hosted a local #SoccerFEST14 event on May 3, 2014. The first world record for the Biggest Pick-Up Game on Earth was set as 14,628 soccer players in 136 communities across the U.S. joined together to celebrate AYSO’s landmark 50th Anniversary.
The weather was threatening and local turn out was much smaller than anticipated. Eric was the only boy that participated in the local event. He had fun playing soccer and eating the free food.
