Welcome to SoccerSpace USA's home page.

SoccerSpace is about soccer fields.  There aren't enough of them, especially in the inner city, and we want to contribute to putting that right.

Here you will eventually find a whole library of resources for the acquisition, development, maintenance and enhancement of soccer fields.  Initially, we will concentrate on Los Angeles County but eventually the site's information will cover the entire United States and, one day, Canada and Mexico.  In the meantime, check out some links to resources we have already discovered and useful articlesLet us know what else you think we should add.

We will be developing a toolkit on all of soccer field-related activities from legal to environmental to political right down to how to kill the weeds.  So watch this SoccerSpace!

In 2001, we helped Beverly Hills High School fundraise for installation of permanent lights on its one and a half fields.  We raised over $250,000 for this project.  Despite its famous name, Beverly has very little field space and no money - it is a typical, underfunded California public school which has to spend all of its facilities budget on earthquake safety and renovating 70 year old classrooms.  Visit our Beverly Hills Lights and Fields site if you have a connection to Beverly or programs such as AYSO and Little League that use Beverly's field.
