Charity[edit]

S.O.S is currently collaborating with Balls Without Borders (Ballswithoutborders.com) and Global Futbol Initiative,[2] two non-profit charitable organizations that supply soccer balls to underprivileged communities throughout the world. GFI's mission is to provide enjoyment and activity to underprivileged areas throughout the world by providing futbol equipment.

S.O.S has several charitable initiatives to give back to the global community. Their most recent charity driven exhibition match was played against Vinnie Jones[3]' Hollywood All-Star Futbol Club. It was a battle of the sexes that united everyone for a cause. The proceeds from these events enable the Sirens to directly give back to underprivileged children and spread their passion for soccer.
