Happy 10th birthday to the Chinatown Soccer Club! Watch the documentary we made about them earlier this year.
Meet the Chinatown Soccer Club, one of the most original and inspirational football clubs in New York. Founded back in 2002 after Adidas invited a bunch of downtown crews and personalities to take part in the first installment of the annual Fanatic soccer tournament, the CSC is one part soccer crew and one part creative collective.
In the early days there was just a simple email list to call games, but over time, the CSC grew, embracing friends and acquaintances from the downtown creative community. Nowadays, the club is also a platform by which its members are able to collaborate and express themselves creatively via self-published photo books, a haphazard clothing line, and a limited run of soccer scarves and stickers.
