Public Service Announcement (PSA)

Corboy & Demetrio Releases Powerful PSA Videos about the Danger of Unsecured Soccer Goals in Launch of Soccer Goal Safety Campaign

With fall soccer season underway, Corboy & Demetrio is releasing three public service announcement (PSA) videos about the danger of unsecured soccer goals for TV and the Internet, as part of a broader soccer goal safety campaign, Make Soccer Safe.

The PSAs feature the family of six-year-old Zachary Tran of Vernon Hills who died in 2003 when a goal fell on him. Zachary’s parents had no idea the goals were dangerous. And they are far from alone.

In launching the campaign, Corboy & Demetrio is partnering with Anchored for Safety to help educate parents, schools, park districts and children about the danger of movable soccer goals. To view the PSA, click below:

You Can Help
Parents, coaches, parks and recreation officials – DON’T send kids on unsafe playing fields. DO be diligent – check goals before and after each practice, game, and field maintenance. More…
