Local Real Estate Company And Tampa Bay United Soccer Club Removing the “Pay to Play” Stigma

For over a year now, one of the largest youth soccer programs in Tampa Bay, the Tampa Bay United Rowdies (TBU) has been partnered with local real estate company, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group (BHHS FLPG) in launching a philanthropic outreach campaign called “Play It Forward”. The goal is to provide a greater opportunity to boys and girls who wish to play club soccer by removing the “pay to play” stigma.

“We found synergy with the TBU team in our shared vision of a healthy community and the important role youth sports play. The launch of the Play It Forward campaign is a bold approach to help reduce the financial stress that deters families from being able to play sports and our organization wholeheartedly supports the effort,” says Casey Bryan, President of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group.

How it Works: Play It Forward establishes a website and dedicated phone line for people interested in the real estate services of BHHS FLPG. Someone seeking to buy or sell their home, can visit or call 813-800-4TBU. BHHS FLPG will then pair an agent who is a perfect match for the real estate need, whether it is buying or selling a home or something else. You get the privilege of knowing you supported a company that is contributing to TBU and the Play it Forward campaign. 100% of the funds will go towards helping kids in need at their soccer club. There is no extra fee to the consumer at all.

In the past year, a total of $14,100 has been donated to TBU to be contributed to soccer families in need. That number stems from a total of 7 homes that have been bought or sold through this philanthropic “Play It Forward” program. To participate in the Play It forward Campaign, visit or call the website and phone number listed above. If you are looking to put your home on the market, please contact a BHHS FLPG representative. There is no extra fee to help these kids get the soccer experience of their dreams.
