Kick off the beginning of summer and compete for a great cause!

Sporting KC 5v5 Fest is a one-day, five-a-side soccer festival for 1st & 2nd grade recreational teams and U8-U13 competitive teams.

The best part? Proceeds from Sporting KC 5v5 Fest tournament support The Victory Project’s Soccer Assist GrantThis grant provides funding for players, clubs and organizations in Kansas, Missouri and throughout the Midwest.

Funds from the Soccer Assist Grant can be used to cover club fees, league registration, uniforms, equipment, transportation and more!

Thanks to last year’s 5v5 Fest, we gave $10,000 to the Soccer Assist Grant!

Grab your friends, teammates or neighbors and join us for this full day of fun, soccer and supporting The Victory Project!

Soccer Assist Grant Testimonials

“Dear Victory Project, thank you so much for the grant for my uniform. It will help a lot. I appreciate it so much.”

“We cannot find the words to thank you enough for what you have done for our son. We are eternally grateful for supporting our son.”

We’ve used the grant funds for our scholarship athletes to secure 3 jersey tops (red, white, blue), coordinating shoes, socks, warm up jacket and pants, and practice gear. Thank you so much! I can’t express how much our families appreciate the support!”
