Guiness World Record

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                           
August 15, 2012

Seattle Sounders FC team with America SCORES Seattle to break world record.

10 cities. 3000+ dribblers. One world record.

September 29th at 2PM @ Seattle University.

Seattle, WA - Over the past month, the world watched in awe as the world’s best athletes broke record after record at the 2012 London Olympic Games. While the Games may indeed have ended, the opportunity to break yet another world record beckons…this time to anyone living in Seattle or any of the 10 America SCORES cities of Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Portland, San Francisco and St. Louis.

The Great America SCORES Soccer Dribble is a national event that’s being coordinated locally by America SCORES Seattle.  SCORES supporters will be joining forces with other America SCORES cities to break the Guinness World Record for the number of people dribbling a soccer ball at the same time. The current record is 2,068 set by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the Gaza Strip.

The attempt will be made at Seattle University on Saturday, September 29th, 2012 from 2 – 4 PM. Participants will receive a new soccer ball, an event t-shirt, a chance to win a Sounders FC autographed team jersey and a skills demonstration with Seattle University men’s soccer players.  Fun activities are planned for the whole family.

All funds raised from this record breaking event will benefit America Scores Seattle, a nonprofit that helps underserved elementary school students with programs combing soccer, literacy and service learning.
