Common Goal: Play Proud Initiative

In 2022, we are partnering with Common Goal and Play Proud to make our communities and stadiums safer for the LGBTQ+ community.

The Common Goal movement is a unique team in soccer that maximizes the game’s contribution to people and planet. Our very own head coach, Casey Stoney is a part of the Common Goal movement, pledging 1% of her salary towards soccer for good. We have joined forces with Common Goal’s Play Proud Initiative for Pride month, teaming up with 8 other professional soccer clubs, across five leagues in Mexico, Canada and the United States. We are committed to making sure all our players, coaches, staff, fans, and young people in San Diego feel safe to be themselves.
