As a part of St. Louis CITY SC’s larger initiative to make soccer accessible to all, the club has collaborated with Dutchtown Main Streets and Allies of Marquette Park, Dutchtown South Community Corporation, MADE STL, St. Louis City Parks Department, and other local organizations to install the City of St. Louis’ first outdoor futsal court in Marquette Park. In order to celebrate the official opening of the futsal court, STL CITY SC will host a kickoff event at 9:30 a.m. CT on Saturday, September 25.

Although the futsal court has been open to the public following its completion in early September, the kickoff event will celebrate the accomplishment within the neighborhood and invite neighbors to come out to learn more about soccer and upcoming programming. This court represents more than an opportunity for residents to play soccer together, it is a way to unite the community through the power of collaboration and sports. Whether if it’s through a pickup game, futsal tournaments, or training sessions – the opportunities are endless.

“Our club is thrilled to bring soccer to the Dutchtown community with the installation of the Marquette Park Futsal Court!” said STL CITY SC’s VP of Community Relations, Khalia Collier. “We are passionate in our belief that soccer should be accessible to all. Not only will this court provide the community a space to play soccer, but it will also bring opportunities for free community soccer training to the children within the neighborhood.”

The Marquette Park Futsal Court is designed by local artist Jayvn Solomon which brings together both elements of the artist’s own style and the style of the Dutchtown neighborhood it resides in. The neighborhood is also represented in the design of the Made STL custom fabricated goals that feature the logos of both St. Louis CITY SC and the Dutchtown neighborhood.
