C2G`s Urban Street Soccer Fest:
A Celebration of Community, Culture and Creative Expression
Eclectic international culture invades the Queen City with Charlotte`s first ever Urban Street Soccer Fest on December 13, 2008 at Eastland Mall on the city`s east side. Concrete2Green, (C2G) along with Street Soccer USA, a 501[c]3 organization, will host this celebration of the world`s game by providing an afternoon full of community, culture and creative expression. This event will feature a soccer clinic, street soccer 4 vs. 4 matches, freestyle exhibitions, live art, music and prizes.

C2G`s last event was held in Washington, DC as a part of the USA Homeless Cup which was a tremendous success.  Proceeds of the Urban Street Soccer Fest will go towards assisting with Street Soccer USA`s local programming efforts.

"We [C2G and Street Soccer USA] have come together because we understand the power soccer can play as a means for social change," explains Akbar Majeed, President and Co-Founder of Concrete2Green.
