Rave Foundation 26 by 2026

RAVE Foundation is on a mission to build 26 community play fields by 2026 – when the biggest tournament in the world’s game comes to North America. Each RAVE field is developed collaboratively with the communities that surround them, and are activated through year-round RAVE programs designed to foster wellness, inspire learning, and create joy.

To date, RAVE Foundation and partners have opened 19 fields in communities throughout Washington, with many more being planned. Have an idea for a RAVE field location? Email rave@soundersfc.com

RAVE Fields are Community Anchors

RAVE fields are more than just a soccer space. They are a community’s place to belong. RAVE Fields are intended for the communities they inhabit, and can never be rented by outside groups. RAVE fields can be used for soccer, and for any gatherings or events they inspire. At their core, RAVE fields are designed to invite free, unstructured play.

RAVE Fields are small, informing small-sided soccer or pick-up play. Some feature a turf surface such as the fields at Yesler Terrace Park and NewHolly, and many are hard surface courts or “mini pitches” - such as the fields at Seahurst Elementary in Burien, Highlands Park in Renton, and at Barge-Lincoln Elementary in Yakima.

TODAY: 19 fields have been built, are open for free play and serve as the anchor for RAVE and RAVE partner programs.

RAVE Fields Anchor RAVE Programs

RAVE Foundation partners with each community to bring fields to life through year-round programming focused on supporting the whole, healthy child in areas of physical and mental health, learning and joy. RAVE Programs are organized by age and grade level, and are often customizable based on community input and need.

TODAY: In 2023, over 10,000 youth per year participate in programs and on and around 13 RAVE community fields.

TARGET: By 2026, 100,000 youth will have engaged in RAVE programs on and around 26 RAVE community fields.
