About Green White Soccer Club
Green White Soccer Club was founded in Chicago in 1956 and has been an institution in the Chicago area’s soccer community ever since. In 1982 Green White became a proud affiliate of the Mt. Prospect Park District and has been operating at the clubhouse and soccer fields at Majewski Park in Mt. Prospect from that point.
In our 63 years Green White soccer teams have won national (including a 2018 President’s Cup title) and state championships. Our alumni have gone on to play at all college levels while others have gone on to compete professionally with many enshrined in the Illinois Soccer Hall of Fame.
While maintaining a focus on being a community based, not for profit organization, Green White remains committed to teaching soccer and instilling a love for the game at all youth levels from U8 to U23 for boys and girls. Our teams compete in the Illinois Women’s Soccer League, the Young Sportsman’s Soccer League, local and regional tournaments while sending teams to Europe every other year through our International Experience Program.
