"Soccer is a sport that builds so many skills and abilities, and brings people of all kinds together. Fun Bunch taps into those values, which I believe are unique to our sport, and that's why I love being part of it. It's been a wonderful experience for me, my kids and their friends, because the soccer pitch is where we all find common ground."  Brian's full bio.
