Tournament Info


Hope International Soccer Festival (HISF) was created in support of unity, cultural inclusion, social activity, and celebration of people. The tournament is one of the first, largest, and most celebrated multicultural soccer event, organized in the United States, particularly within North Carolina. We are pleased to announce that the 2021 Hope International Soccer Fest (HISF) will be hosted in partnership with the North Carolina Fusion (N.C.

The tournament is put together annually to allow players to showcase their talents in front of colleges, professional/semi-professional coaches, scouts, recruiter, agents, etc.  Portion of the proceeds from the tournament goes towards a building fund for the first international Hope Academy, which will model a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineer, Arts, and Math) and sports programs within North Carolina USA and Liberia, West Africa.

TOURNAMENT SPIRT

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination”. Nelson Mandela
