Just add philanthropist to SoccerSam Fantauzzo’s resume.

The Major Arena Soccer League announced Monday that the Rochester Lancers owner has started SoccerSam’s Soccer Stimulus Support.

“We want to help kids throughout the country with scholarships to play for elite clubs,” Fantauzzo said in a statement.

SoccerSam’s Soccer Stimulus Support can financially assist families in need to help pay for soccer clubs or camps.

Parents or players can email their story to soccersam@soccersam.com for consideration.

If chosen, details will be communicated to the family, and if the child makes the team, Fantauzzo will help pay for their tuition. The goal of this program is to not let financial hardship deter soccer development.
