So let's Celebrate!
The third annual Marathon Soccer Game (Soccer-Thon) will be held early in the fall 2010 season on the NEW TURF FIELD. The game will be merged with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the project and the day will be a wonderful celebration for Mansfield Youth Soccer and the Mansfield community. The game will be structured as it has been in the past but with an added twist of a ribbon ceremony to kick off the game. We will communicate details to our soccer community throughout the spring season in hopes that you can start obtaining pledges over the summer to help make this year's game a record high in funds raised.
Another Success thanks to many !
But not by much.... Final Score was 91 Green Team to 90 White Team
Final funds total ... $16,523.00 WoW !
Thank you all for your generous contributions !
The day began at 9am and ended at 10pm. The adults went into the last game with the White team ahead by 2 goals. They tried to close the gap but could only close it by 1 goal which wasn't enough to take the Soccer Marathon Cup for 2009.
Special Thanks to the High School Boys team for playing during the noon hour, the Boston Breakers and NE Revolution for providing player appearances, Best Buy for providing volunteers for the day, Marathon Physical Therapy and Fitness Together for their participation through out the day, Pub 99 for providing hamburgers and hot dogs for the noon hour, Mocking Bird Music for providing the sound system.
The event flowed smoothly thanks so many volunteers. We thank you for your time and support. We could not have done it without such a strong family membership !

What is a SoccerMarathon?
Two teams (Green Hornets and White Hornets) made up of various age groups competing in a 15 hour continuous soccer game. Score will be accumulated each hour. The winner of the overall game will be the team with the highest accumulated score.
Not Just Soccer ?
May 16th at the H.S. Alumni turf field will be much more than just playing soccer. There will be a kick off ceremony, award ceremonies after all games, face painting, tattoos, music to keep the teams hoping, radar gun kicking contests, raffles, concessions, juggling for patches and special guest from the N.E. Revolution. Even if you do not play soccer stop by and support the game and enjoy the fun activities.
Why a SoccerMarathon?
The hope to involve the community in the raising funds for Fields of Green. Go to our Fields of Green page for more information about our fundraising efforts.
