Soccer Fundraising for Tournaments

I know that soccer fundraising is probably not your favorite thing to think about, but for teams that wish to travel greater distances for tournaments, perhaps even overseas, the matter of how to pay for the trip has to be considered.

If you’re like most people, you probably hate the thought of organizing another time-consuming project that you can not even be sure will succeed.

At times it feels like the fundraising industry hasn’t changed one bit in the last 50 years. Coaches continue to force athletes to sell products door-to-door that no one seems to want to buy.

And let’s face it, as a parent or coach, you most likely are not too crazy about the idea of having your child going around to strangers and asking them to buy things that are either overpriced, unnecessary, or a combination of the two.

We know you didn’t become a coach because you enjoy fundraising. That’s why your ultimate goal with any fundraiser should always be to earn the most profit in the shortest time with the fewest possible transactions.

You could try selling items that save people money, like discount coupons or cards to popular places, or you could hawk soccer gifts, like commemorative trophies and t-shirts, that may represent a more sentimental and less-commercial experience.

And there is one program we've found where you don't actually have to sell anything. It's called www.MySportsDreams.com, a company which, over the last 18 years, has helped thousands of teams raise the money they need quickly and profitably.

In this part of the site we’ll be listing a series of helpful articles and links that serve to help you raise money for your team’s travel, equipment or uniforms. If you have any successful ideas that we failed to cover, please let us know by filling out our feedback form..
