PUMA and Christian Pulisic Unite to Empower Youth in the US

June 26, 2023

In collaboration with soccer superstar Christian Pulisic, we launched the PUMA x Christian Pulisic Legacy Program. This multi-faceted, long-term initiative aims to provide underserved children in North America with access to the beautiful game of soccer through product donations, camps, clinics, safe access to playing fields and more!

Since joining forces with PUMA in 2021, Pulisic has been dedicated to nurturing the growth of soccer among the youth in the United States. The establishment of the PUMA x Christian Pulisic Legacy Program marks a significant milestone in our joint commitment to offer a platform for aspiring players from all backgrounds, enabling anyone who wants to play soccer to do so through the various pillars of the program.

“I am incredibly proud to announce the establishment of the PUMA x Christian Pulisic Legacy Program and the opening of our first ever Stomping Grounds facility in Miami, a city that means so much to me because of the support and the love this city has shown me since I made Florida my home"

"The shared commitment that PUMA and I have made to inspire the next generation of players and help grow the game of soccer in the U.S. has been the utmost priority in our partnership. This Stomping Grounds facility in Miami will be the first of many developments and opportunities planned to provide underserved youth access to a field where they can learn, play and dream."

The PUMA x Christian Pulisic Legacy Program kicked off with the opening of the “Pulisic Stomping Grounds powered by PUMA,” a new SOCTAINER soccer facility in the Miami area. This groundbreaking initiative offers a free and secure space where local youth can overcome barriers and embrace the joy of soccer while learning valuable skills applicable both on and off the field.

PUMA will sponsor weekly pitch sessions, six days a week, led by a dedicated coaching staff who will guide the youth through skill-building exercises, drills, and games. While the program’s core focus is introducing kids to soccer, it also prioritizes mentoring and nurturing their personal growth by emphasizing teamwork, leadership, and essential life skills. The progressive soccer curriculum starts with fundamental skills such as dribbling, shooting, and passing, gradually building upon these foundations week after week.

Looking ahead, PUMA and Christian have plans to introduce more Stomping Grounds facilities across the United States leading up to the highly anticipated 2026 World Cup.

As part of the program’s long-term goals, PUMA has pledged to donate soccer balls to ensure that underserved youth have access to the game. In partnership with The DICK’s Sporting Goods Foundation, PUMA and Christian Pulisic aim to donate a minimum of 60,000 soccer balls by the 2026 FIFA World Cup, benefiting not only the participants of Stomping Grounds programs but also other communities in need throughout the country.

To celebrate the launch of the Miami pitch program, PUMA and Christian collaborated with Shenandoah Elementary School for a weeklong camp, where each of the 50 participants received items from the new PUMA x CP Youth Pack, including the youth ULTRA boot, apparel, and accessories.

The collection with prices ranging from $12 to $60, ensures that Christian’s young fans can afford and access these stylish pieces.
