Chicago House Athletic Club is the latest soccer entity to join Common Goal, the soccer-based charity co-founded by Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata.
The initiative sees House commit to donating 1% of select revenue streams to charity, specifically anti-racist projects.
“Common Goal’s values align with Chicago House AC,” Chicago House CEO, co-founder, and managing director Peter Wilt said. “So partnering with Common Goal helps reinforce and activate Chicago House’s commitment to be a catalyst for inclusivity, racial equity, and social justice.”
“Chicago House will serve as a platform for community organizations that share our values to raise funds and amplify their voice. We will partner with representative community organizations to make sure the diversity of our club’s partners and the people they serve reflect all of Chicago.”
Chicago House has signed nine players over the past month as the club prepares to open their season in the NISA Independent Cup in July.
