Iraqi Soccer Project is a non-profit coalition driven to bring enjoyment in soccer to the displaced children of the Gulf Region. Having grown up enjoying the game with full access to opportunities, Founder Trey McMinn wanted to utilize the time during his deployment to the Middle East to provide children of conflict areas a chance to play the game as he did. Based out of Nashville, Tennessee (and run by Trey from abroad), this Project looks to reinvigorate the region's love for the Beautiful Game. 

ISP operates by working with existing NGO's and Non-Profit's in a collaboration to spread the enjoyment of the game to these children and affected communities. 

Existing Partnerships:
- Football Is Freedom Project - direct fundraising and donation partner geared to helping ISP extend its reach and increase its footprint. 
- PARK Social Soccer Co. - soccer ball brand built on the idea of utilizing the Beautiful Game as a beautiful social tool for positive change. PARK SSC is ISP's Official Ball Partner and provides ISP with balls purchased through their Pass A Ball initiative. 
- Where Is Football - the multi-platform digital blog that showcases how the game is enjoyed across the globe is helping ISP by telling the story of Iraqi Soccer and the impact conflict has had on its state for youth in the coutnry. This partnership will provide a narrative for the needs of our mission and showcase our efforts to drive change from their worldwide following. 

All donated equipment will go directly to refugee children in need in either Jordan or Kuwait through PARK SSC's Pass-A-Ball Project.

All monetary donations will be utilized to either buy soccer balls for children or to supplement the organization's logistics cost for equipment that is being donated from across the world to support our efforts. Balls will cost approximately $12-14 a piece, to include shipping costs. Shipping costs for donated equipment will vary by size and quantity. 

All funds will go toward the next wave of deliveries. Coordination is being made with existing and already-present NGO's and other Non-Profit's to make these deliveries within the refugee camps. 

Full documentation of our progress can be seen on our Instagram page or on our website at www.iraqisoccerproject.org.

Thank you for your interest and support!
