The new Louisville Soccer Foundation — a 501(c)(3) charitable arm of Louisville City FC and Racing Louisville FC — will open its first major fundraiser this week with a Kickoff Auction featuring unique items from both professional clubs.
Bidding starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday and runs through Dec. 12 on memorabilia such as Racing goalkeeper Katie Lund’s jersey from her legendary performance in The Women’s Cup as well as a LouCity team-signed ball from the first game at Lynn Family Stadium.
Among the experiences offered are training days with the pros, game days in a Lynn Family Stadium suite and team travel to an away game.

With a goal to advance the health and wellness of the community through the power of soccer, fundraising efforts for the Louisville Soccer Foundation started late last season via a 50/50 raffle to support the first youth soccer leagues at a trio of Metro Parks.
The foundation has since formed a board and is actively seeking an executive director. Its mission is to “use soccer to provide our youth a safe place and the opportunity to dream, thrive, and succeed” through community partnerships.
