1   Due to heavy rains over the last several weeks in Rio de Janeiro, the Complexo do Alemão field was greatly damaged.  The love.fútbol community volunteers tirelessly worked together as a team to clean and paint the Complexo do Alemão field.

  Yet the rain didn’t stop the community from enjoying their new field. The local community has already kicked off weekly community soccer games. Community members from all ages are allowed to play on the love.fútbol fields such as this kid.

  Community members in Complexo do Alemão take advantage of their new field by hosting social development programs that use soccer to educate youth.
