Christian Fuchs opens Foxes Sports Foundation to support disadvantaged youth soccer players
Warwick, NY – Christian Fuchs of English Premier League’s Leicester City FC announced the creation of the “Foxes Sports Foundation”, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), operating out of Warwick, New York. The foundation aims to help ambitious children play the sport they desire.
Speaking about the foundation Fuchs stated: “Being in the position to allow more children to achieve their dreams is less of a privilege as it is an obligation. I know what it’s like to be on the pitch with tough competition, uncertain if I could achieve success. Through my team’s work at Fox Soccer Academy and Hudson Sports Complex, we have laid the groundwork to give children a quality sport education. I hope that this foundation can act as a collaborative effort to further our capacity to execute this critical task.”
Fuchs is asking for charitable, tax-deductible donations to create grants and scholarships for disadvantaged children with a desire to play their favorite sport. In addition to contributions, he seeks to achieve his goal by:
- Offering a thoroughly trained and certified staff of sports professionals at all levels of operations
- Creating an expansive training facility catering to multiple weather conditions
- Providing an in house scouting program to help guide rising players to increasing levels of professionalism
