An Opportunity to Help Disabled Footballers in Haiti

// August 5th, 2010 // No Comments » // International, Other Countries

MLS Phoenix Rising recently learned the principals of Phoenix Pro Soccer (PPS) have another exciting project in the works. While many in the Phoenix area know about PPS’s efforts to bring a professional soccer franchise to the Valley, they believe their upcoming personal mission work is a bit more important in the greater scheme of things. PPS’s managing partners, Chris Campasano and Edward Sakiewicz, will be traveling to Port-au-Prince, Haiti on August 12, 2010, on a mission trip with Dr Fred Sorrells from the International Institute of Sport to help organize and select the first-ever Haitian National Amputee Football Team. The team will be assembled in Haiti in preparation for their participation in the Amputee Football World Cup to be held in Crespo, Argentina from October 16-27, 2010.
