What is Community Ambassador?

The Chicago Fire's Community Ambassador program has been designed to support the work of youth organizations to deliver FREE, year round, professional soccer programming!

The Community Ambassador staff focus on building strong and lasting relationships within communities, providing wider opportunities for children, young people and adults to interact and connect with the Chicago Fire Soccer Club.

How does it work?

You can formally submit your interest online through our “Register” page or email communityambassador@chicago-fire.com. We will reach out to you after your request is received. Each clinic is unique and tailor-made to match your organizations goals and interest.

Take a look at our Clinic Types for some of the ways organizations utilize our program. We will do our best to accommodate your requests and work with you every step of the way to ensure your experience is as impactful as possible.

Where do Community Ambassador Clinics take place?

The clinics are delivered at your facility, within your community, making it accessible for as many people to attend as possible. Clinics are delivered indoors and outdoors and we try to be as accommodating as possible to work within the space available.

What is the cost?

FREE, FREE, and FREE. There is no charge for our service.

Who are the Community Ambassadors and what are their experience?

Our Community Ambassador staff are USSF certified, soccer professionals, with extensive experience working with players, coaches and parents.

Who does Community Ambassador work with?

Community Ambassador works with organizations that are passionate about making a difference in communities through soccer.

In addition to local youth organizations, we also work with Chicago Public Schools, School Districts, Park Districts, Soccer Clubs, Community Clubs (YMCA`s, Boys & Girls Clubs) Public Libraries, and Churches to name a few.

What other ways can we use Community Ambassador to connect with the Chicago Fire Soccer Club?

The Community Ambassador can also help you create and build wider relationships within the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. If you were looking for more programs in the community such as Little Sparks, Soccer, Schools or Summer Camps, come out to a Chicago Fire home game, or to have a visit from mascot Sparky, we will work with you to create the experience you are looking for.

What is the Community Ambassador After School Program (ASP)?

The ASP is the Community Ambassador’s program that supports the building of sustainable and/or seasonal programming to create wider opportunities and experiences for children to participate in afterschool soccer activities. We do this by training volunteers to deliver safe and specific practices, and providing the necessary resources for the program to be successful long-term. To find out more, please check out our After School Program Page.

What is expected from our organization?

All we need is confirmation of space and for all participants to complete a participation release waiver. We will provide cones, soccer balls and other soccer equipment for the clinic portion of the visit.

What if a participant does not hand in their Community Ambassador Waiver Form?

Unfortunately, if a participant fail to complete and hand in their waiver form, they would not be able to participate. We have hard copy waivers at all our clinics and also have an easy to use online waiver in our waiver section.
