The Steel City World Cup and Global Festival celebrates Pittsburgh’s vibrant and global community, as expressed through soccer–the Beautiful Game.

Each year, PUMP and our collaborative partners host a soccer tournament for the global community with teams representing countries from around the world. The competition takes place over one weekend with over 60 total games played in the group stage on Saturday and single elimination stage for the Top 16 on Sunday.

The goals of the Steel City World Cup are to:
  • Celebrate global cultures, diversity, and inclusion by hosting a fun, safe, and welcoming World Cup-style soccer tournament
  • Build relationships among individuals and organizations representing the Pittsburgh region’s vibrant and growing world community and long-time southwestern Pennsylvanians
  • Facilitate cross-cultural understanding and bridge building that leads to opportunities and resources
