Ukraine Youth Soccer Tour

Ukrainian Youth Soccer Tour: USA Cup & MN Tour – July 8-26, 2022

Ukrainian unprovoked war has produced a humanitarian catastrophe. Civilians, hospitals, orphanages, families, mothers and children have all been targeted. Ukrainian refugees and youth have had to flee from their homes.

The Ukraine Youth Soccer Tour is giving 13-16 year old refugees the opportunity to come to the USA and escape from the trauma of war. The tour will include uplifting interactions to reinforce that they have value and worth as well as meaningful international cultural exchanges with youth from around the world.

The heart of this trip is to let them know they have not been forgotten and have support from all over the world during their time of trauma and need.

The 17 days trip will be divided into experiencing the USA Cup Youth Soccer Tournament and a Midwest Tour based in MN. The USA Cup is the world’s largest youth soccer tournament with over 1,000 teams from 65 different countries. The trip will also include Ukraine Benefits, international gatherings, government officials, Source MN youth leadership events, church leadership gatherings, professional sporting events, amusement parks and great food.

Current Update:

Great News – We have had positive communication with the US Embassy and the boys team refugees have visa appointments (this is very big), The Girls we are still organizing, but if the boys visas go through this should pave the way for the girls.
