UPDATE: 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.  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!


A co-ed, adult-only soccer tournament where we pick the teams but you pick the winner . . . .

Get on the pitch with Steve Nash and friends for a soccer tournament you won’t forget — limited registration is available, don’t miss out!


Two Charity Shields to choose from – New York City and Los Angeles! The Steve Nash Foundation Charity Shield is your chance to mix it up on the soccer field and in the pub with the beautiful game’s two-time NBA MVP — you’ll meet new teammates, make a big assist for kids, and have a ton of fun.  Next up:


Friday On-A-Date-To-Be-Rescheduled-Soon! (New York City, NY) ~ Dinner : 6p | Pub Night : 7:30p

Shield Friday Night: a not-to-be-missed night!  Prospective team owners will meet Steve for dinner at his favorite NYC eatery to get to know the man behind our work to grow health in kids, and vie to own the winning team.  Meanwhile, players will be assigned a team, drink, and strategize for the next day’s play, then watch while their teams are sold to donors in a raucous live event — all in support of the Steve Nash Foundation’s work for underserved kids.  The owner of the winning team wins a cash pot and other prizes – play, bid or do both! 


Saturday On-A-Date-To-Be-Rescheduled-Soon! (Brooklyn, NY) ~ Kick-Off : 11am

Charity Shield Tourney: your newly-formed teams, fueled by lunch and the best crop of competitors around, will compete throughout the day, with the top teams emerging to enter single-elimination Shield Rounds. You’ll enjoy a day of rain-or-shine footie, food, and friendly competition, prizes and more!  New this year: kids programming to keep your pint-sized MVP active during your day o’ play – sign up for the Shield’s NYCFC Youth Clinic at registration!

Sports can empower change.  That’s one reason we’re working with RISE to Vote at our events — our shared excitement at bringing people together in ways that encourage them to use their voice and their power to make a real difference. RISE to Vote, a national nonpartisan initiative, will be registering friends and athletes to vote at the Charity Shield, providing an opportunity to take action. Take the RISE to Vote pledge at to show your commitment to using your voice. 





*The Charity Shield will be held rain or shine.  In the event of severe weather cancellation for your safety, no refunds will be issued.  We appreciate your support, and your thoughts of sunshine!
