Meet our team
Some team members keep a mural of soccer scarves hanging from their office walls. Others stack baseball bats like Lincoln Logs or build shrines and pedestals for limited edition soccer cleats. And that’s just what they do in the office.

What We Value
In 1991, we started the Passback Program, an effort to provide new and lightly used soccer equipment to underserved communities both stateside and around the world. In 2002, we partnered with the U.S. Soccer Foundation to expand that reach even further and to date Passback has collected and redistributed more than 1.1 million pieces of gently-used cleats, balls and equipment to players in need around the globe.
