Soccer support groups team up on merch, proceeds benefit LGBTQ youth

In an effort to help create a safe space for LGBTQIA+ youth, two soccer support groups—Los Verdes and The Plastics—are collaborating on limited-edition merch.


Austin FC support group Los Verdes and inclusive women and queer Major League Soccer support group The Plastics have designed a summer scarf that combines their love of soccer, Tejano culture and inclusivity.

The scarf features each group's logo and the phrase "Y'all means all" over stripes that were inspired by Daniel Quasar's Progress Pride flag. All proceeds from the merch will be donated to Out Youth, an organization that provides a safe space and resources to LGBTQ youth and their families.

According to Los Verdes' website, the new scarf "represents the solidarity and exchange between communities: LGBTQ+, womxn, non-binary, Latinx, Tejan@s, Chicanos, Hispanics, and all fellow FÚTBOL LOVERS."

Last month, Los Verdes collaborated with Austin Coalition on bandanas that showed their support for combating racial injustice.

The Los Verdes x The Plastics SG summer scarf is available here on pre-order until Sept. 11.
