The Atlanta United Foundation (AUF) and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) are partnering for GA100, a statewide mini-pitch campaign with the goal of constructing up to 100 mini-pitches across the state, leading into the 2026 World Cup.
The campaign began in 2020, and four grants were awarded in Phase One to The Cherokee Youth Foundation, Coastal Outreach Soccer, Sweetwater Mission and The Bainbridge Decatur County Recreation Authority to begin construction. In June 2021, eight grants were awarded to six additional organizations across Georgia for Phase Two construction. See below for more information on the first and second phase of pitches.
We are now taking applications for Phase Three to award up to eight more grants with the goal of providing underserved communities in Georgia with financial and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety and accessibility of local soccer mini-pitches. Information on how to qualify and apply can be found below.
