FC Tucson took to the streets one Barrio at a time. As the club prepared to welcome fans back to games for the 2021 season, FC Tucson announced Barrio 2 Barrio, a series of open-air and socially distanced block parties hosted in different neighborhoods around Tucson. Complete with family-friendly games, player appearances, food trucks, music and more, events ran from April 24 through the end of May 2021.
The Barrio 2 Barrio mobile caravan of FC Tucson branded vehicles cruised through the barrios of Tucson, all in collaboration with community organizations, various neighborhood associations, and City and County officials. Each caravan started and finished up in a designated neighborhood location for a socially distanced pop up barrio block party that will allow for community members to play, network, connect, and find joy through the beautiful game.
Barrio 2 Barrio events included:
- Tifo Painting Station: Become a fan & paint a Tifo piece of art that will represent your Barrio during all FC Tucson home games.
- Inflatable Soccer Cage
- Fun Challenge Games
- Player Appearances & Autographs
