BackYardFooty X The Queen’s English Foundation
Founders from two Charlotte based soccer podcasts; “BackyardFooty” and “The Queen’s English: Soccer Show“, have joined forces to create a T-shirt that both promotes awareness for the Black Lives Matter cause in Charlotte, NC and on a national stage; and generates much needed revenue streams for affiliated foundations aimed at ameliorating the lives of Charlotteans from disadvantaged backgrounds. In the truest sense of the terms collaboration and community, these T-shirts are provided by local Charlotte brand OMJ and are custom printed right here in NC.
