Why Soccer could Benefit Jane and Finch

Jane and Finch is known for a lot of things. It is an immigrant hot spot for black and Latino Canadians and it is a central haven for creativity. Jane and Finch has received a lot of negative attention for its housing difficulties, its high rate of crime and the sometimes unfair portrayal the media makes of it. Soccer on the other hand is becoming more global and receives positive media feedback year round when it comes to Fifa or MLS. It brings larger crowds out of any other sport and is steadily gaining even more momentum. With a world accepted sport, the youth in Jane and Finch could benefit from having an accessible playing field with designated times which in the long run will gain them more experience in a new game and ultimately encourage them to play in a more competitive setting. What people don't notice about the residents of Jane and Finch is their passion and positive outlook. Basketball is already very popular among the younger community and with adding another sport to their schedule, it would help promote a healthy, interactive activity to their environment which will resonate with the rest of Toronto. Jane and Finch can make any popular trend even better with the raw spirit and willful determination they all share. At the very least, it'll be good to kick some balls around. Give it a thought and write me back.
