June is a big month for our U.S. national soccer teams. The USMNT will compete for a trophy in the Nations League Finals, while the USWNT will prepare for the Olympics with their WNT Summer Series. This month, we want to mobilize our #AOFamily to not only support our teams on the field, but our community off the field. The American Outlaws, the largest supporters group for the U.S. national soccer teams, are asking members and fans alike to join us in making a pledge through Prideraiser in support of Common Goal.
Common Goal, who AO has joined in launching the Anti Racist Project, has the sole purpose of uniting the global football community to tackle the greatest social challenges of our time. Together, we can rid the beautiful game of its ugly elements, including homophobia, transphobia, racism, and gender inequality. By creating a bond between soccer players, managers, fans, teams, organizations, brands, and confederations, we can form a team that is strong enough to take on society's toughest opponents.
This year, AO is pledging against all USMNT and USWNT goals in the month of June. There will be 6 total matches for our senior national teams in the month of June:
June 3 - MNT vs. Honduras (Nations League semifinals)
June 6 - MNT vs. Mexico/Costa Rica (Nations League final or 3rd place)
June 9 - MNT vs. Costa Rica
June 10 - WNT vs. Portugal (WNT Summer Series)
June 13 - WNT vs. Jamaica (WNT Summer Series)
June 16 - WNT vs. Nigeria (WNT Summer Series)
We are asking you to join us in pledging at $$/goal (at least $1) to support Common Goal's efforts not just for the Anti-Racist Project, but their global efforts to eliminate homophobia and transphobia from our society. Let's make 2021 a summer of soccer AND a summer of good as we unite to raise as much money as possible for Common Goal!
