May 1, 2015

Edgar Davids, the legendary Dutch midfielder, will be playing in the 2015 ATL Champions League, presented by Profisee. He will be raising funds for Soccer in the Streets and its metro Atlanta programs that empower underserved youth.

“It’s only appropriate that a player known as the ‘Mayor of the Street’ takes part in this event,” said Soccer in the Streets co-chairman Richard Rushton. “Edgar joining Steve Archibald, Paul Canoville, and MLS Atlanta’s Carlos Bocanegra is a huge boost to our event and will be extremely helpful as we raise money to bring our youth development programming to more kids in need.”

Ten teams will be competing on and off the field in this event. Atlanta’s most passionate soccer fans will be representing their favorite clubs in the event. The tournament is coed and played with a 7v7 format.

Edgar Davids featured for Ajax, Juventus, and Tottenham in a 22 year career in Europe.  He represented the Netherlands 74 times, and was named to the 1998 FIFA World Cup “Team of the Tournament.”

Since his retirement, he launched Monta to focus on developing street soccer.  He told Cesare Polenghi of Goal.com, “Street football is great and it can help, because it is opened to everybody and it is very easy; all you need is a ball.”
