You know traveled around the city trying to figure out like I can't I find a pickup soccer game like everything's very organized. He needed a car to drive to it and be able to do soccer game and a lot of other cities you can just go find a pickup games somewhere. While he wasn't alone in his experience of trying to find it he realized that. Kids were also having a really tough time just plain pick up soccer games they had to have transportation they had to have money to sign up for although. Organized sports leagues. So he was like wait a second. I think I can do something about them so he had been volunteering with soccer in the streets. And while he was doing that he made a discovery that. The Atlanta Marta stations were always adjacent to giant parking lots. And those parking lots were created from like this 1970s. Plan of how park and ride policy never really took so there's a whole bunch of empty parking lots are barely being used for what they were intended for so he thought what do we convert some of these pieces of land in the soccer fields. And we use the Marta train station as a network for people and kids to get to pick up soccer games. Well that's exactly what happened with station soccer it's a collaboration. I'd driven by this man's Sanjay Patel soccer in the streets and also. The MLS club here at Lenny united. So they have the first ever soccer pitch belt within the downtown five points station we can just take a train and had to pick up soccer game. Says suck greens are free for kids in Atlanta and then for the adults you have to like chip in some money and all that money goes back to fund more kids games with us and by the end of this year they're gonna open to more of them.
