Off the Pitch News: Team Visits

For the second year in a row, Coritiba requested that their team make an appearance on their day off at the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center.  The Dallas Children's Advocacy Center's mission is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County, and having the Coritiba player's stop by to sign autographs, play games and give gifts from their native Brazil helps lift the spirits of the children.  But the children also made an impression on the players, as they used their blue "I Stand Up For Children" t-shirts that they received during their visit as their warmup jersey and were introduced to the crowd wearing their new shirts.
