This is an invitation, a ball rolling in your direction, a letter marked URGENT.
Soccer needs you. All of you.
The Sunday league player telling stories in the pub.
The tricksters. The outspoken.
The kids from the neighborhood—from Paris, São Paulo, Los Angeles, London.
The attackers, the defenders, the keepers standing alone.
The pitches, the parks, the courts, the alleyways, the sand lots, the streets.
The fans who never stop singing.
It all starts with you. It all starts with a ball.
See you soon.
