Defending W-League champion Pali Blues, now a feeder team for the WPS L.A. Sol, will attempt to set a new world record for most people juggling a soccer ball at one time at its May 9 season opener.
The current record, according to the club, was set by 627 people in 2007 in Vienna, Austria.
The idea, naturally, is to raise the club’s profile, said Pali Blues General Manager Jason Lemire.
“Most people don’t realize it, but amateur teams like the Pali Blues are a lot like public radio – we only exist with the support of our community,” he said. “This is a chance for the soccer world to show that they support grass root organizations like the Pali Blues.”
The second-year term plays at Pacific Palisades High School. To register for the record attempt scheduled for half time, call Lemire at (310) 264-4649. More about the club is here.
