Founded in 1989, The Philadelphia Falcons Soccer Club is a coed, primarily gay and lesbian, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings together adult players of all skill levels and orientations for informal weekly pick-up games, organized league and tournament play, and social events with the goal of providing an environment where friendships, fitness, fair play, and fun flourish. Actively involved in local, regional, national, and international soccer tournaments and events, the Falcons not only enjoy exhibiting their game but also use soccer as a vehicle to enhance respect and understanding for the LGBT community.
