In May 2021, Final Third Foundation and Galacticos FC formalized their partnership. F3 will support Galacticos to provide affordable programming to all ages. The Foundation will connect with grantors, sponsors, and donors to help pay for leagues, tournaments and enrichment programs.
This Spring season 40 players from Galacticos FC participated in the F3's partner recreational program, Columbus East Soccer Association.
Final Third Foundation and Galacticos FC formed this partnership with the goal to help support what Galacticos FC is already set out to achieve - uplift the Latino community in Columbus through sport, specifically soccer.
Martin Ramirez, Head of Galacticos FC, said “I have loved working with Benji and Final Third Foundation. Many players participated in CESA this Spring. It has been a great experience. I know it’s just the start though with F3. I am excited to see where we can take Galacticos together.“
Ben Levey, Executive Director of F3 said, “This is one of the reasons why F3 exists. To support community leaders who are already doing great work. Martin is definitely one of those amazing leaders making a positive impact in his community. This is a long-term partnership with Galacticos that will hopefully help their program advance to the next level. F3 is here to assure that Galacticos participants are provided affordable programming throughout the year. We also hope in the near future to provide our soccer and enrichment programs to Galacticos FC participants and the community as well.”
