Feeling safe playing on a professional soccer team in America, whether it’s in Major League Soccer of the NASL, can be difficult for some players. Those players who are gay may feel uncomfortable on a team because of the dominance of heterosexuality in the locker room. That’s why it’s so important for players, clubs, and entire soccer communities to create an environment in which any player, regardless of their background, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, will feel comfortable.
US Soccer blog DreamStart Soccer, a community that supports to growth of the beautiful game in the United States, supports this cause entirely. Their team believes that soccer is a game that should be enjoyed by everyone and should leave nobody feeling like they don’t belong.
The DreamStart Soccer blog is another helpful area for Americans to learn more about soccer in America and abroad, which provides those not so in tune with the game to become more familiar with it. More than anything, DreamStart Soccer wants to build a great community around soccer in the States in which everyone is welcome.
