Throughout the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, FOX Sports Supports shined a spotlight on two nonprofit organizations using the power of soccer to create positive social change: Soccer Without Borders and streetfootballworld. The first two features tell the stories of Soccer Without Borders members, Shiham and Ophi, who found safe places within the program to start their new lives in America. The third feature was shot in France during the Women’s World Cup at streetfootballworld Festival 19, a convergence of nonprofits from around the world that focuses attention on the work each organization is doing in its respective country. These pieces aired on FS1 and FOX Sports digital platforms during FOX Sports’ exclusive coverage of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
