Greener Goals Week of Service MLS partnerships

Throughout Greener Goals Week of Service, MLS clubs and the League office staff will volunteer their time by conducting environmentally friendly projects in partnership with charitable organizations to positively impact local communities.

To reduce waste and help address food insecurity in their region, MLS clubs will also partner with local charities and food organizations to distribute food, that was prepared but not consumed, following matches at their stadiums. MLS venues will collectively divert more than 61 tons of food to local food donation programs, which is equivalent to approximately 146 tons of CO2e emissions and comparable to 467 one-way flights from San Jose to Montreal.

As part of the League’s commitment to address its environmental impacts where our matches are played, MLS will partner with SandSi and Green 2 Sustainable to pilot a new program, with select MLS venues, that will measure their greenhouse gas emissions and overall environmental impacts. This measurement tool will provide MLS venues the opportunity to benchmark environmental performances and explore opportunities to reduce emissions associated with game-day operations in addition to supporting local environmental initiatives in their communities.

To amplify efforts surrounding reforestation, MLS is partnering with One Tree Planted to plant 1,000 trees on behalf of each MLS community, up to 29,000 trees across the League. Fans will have the opportunity to support this initiative – for every social post using #GreenerGoals, MLS and One Tree Planted will plant one tree as part of large-scale reforestation projects taking place in the U.S. and Canada. This campaign will aim to reforest 68 acres of land to provide cleaner air and water, stored carbon, stabilized soils and improved biodiversity.

This announcement arrives during a period of unprecedented momentum behind the sport of soccer in North America, with MLS’ 29th season underway, the second season of MLS Season Pass on Apple TV, the second season of Leagues Cup and Copa America taking place in 2024, the Concacaf Gold Cup and FIFA Club World Cup slated for 2025, and the FIFA World Cup coming to the U.S., Canada and Mexico in 2026.

Major League Soccer is committed to taking steps to address its environmental impacts and seeks to inspire clubs, players, partners, fans and staff to improve the communities where we live and play our games.

In conjunction with MLS Greener Goals, the Chicago Fire will be celebrating Earth Day with a Club-wide staff volunteer project at Navarro Farm, a local non-profit and Fire partner. Navarro Farm, located in Frankfurt, Illinois, was founded with the purpose of creating a place for individuals with special needs to participate in an agricultural experience, and learn real-world skills, including farming. Fire employees will assist with a variety of Earth Day-themed projects such as gardening, weeding, and working in the farm’s butterfly garden, to support and highlight the important work local agricultural organizations are doing to feed their communities, combat greenhouse gas emissions, and offset the harm done to the environment through sustainability initiatives such as beekeeping.

The partnership began in 2023, when the Fire hosted a soccer clinic for Navarro Farm campers led by goalkeeper Spencer Richey and defender Wyatt Omsberg. Richey and Omsberg learned about the campers’ day-to-day on the farm and assisted them in harvesting vegetables, before leading them through a variety of games designed to teach soccer skills.
