Charity Shield Player Package NYC 2020

Suggested Price: $150

UPDATE: Per the CDC’s recommendations regarding gatherings of 50 people or more, we will be postponing the Charity Shield until a later date (which we hope to announce shortly!).  The health and safety of our athletes, supporters and their families are our highest priority as we continue to monitor updates regarding COVID-19.  Registration remains open; full refunds will be given to all those registered who are not able to attend the new date.  We’re awaiting further guidance, and will post and reach out to all registered players with updates as soon as we have them.  Until then, stay healthy and be kind to each other – hope to see you in NYC soon!
