The Worcester World Cup was literally started 10 years ago in the dirt behind Elm Park Community School by Cultural Exchange Through Soccer(CETS).

It was started in response to the hostile climate against immigrants in our country and the way soccer was treated in our City.

The Worcester World Cup is our challenge to Worcester and our gift to Worcester’s many amazing immigrant communities!

CETS is a youth/adult volunteer community soccer effort. We play soccer. We get involved in community projects. We promote youth development and youth leadership. We are a mixture of nationalities, ages and backgrounds.

We ask our City leaders why they’re not fixing and building soccer fields.

We started as a 6-week youth soccer clinic in 2003 and have grown into so much more!

THANK YOU for being a part of this journey and for making the WWC an amazing festival every year.
