North Carolina Courage Spotlight


The North Carolina Courage are a Division I professional women’s soccer team that play in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL). The NC Courage play home games at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC.

The North Carolina Courage is committed to supporting programs and non-profit organizations that make a positive impact in their community. Depending on the nature of the event, the North Carolina Courage assists organizations via in-kind donations of tickets and team memorabilia including posters, t-shirts, soccer balls and other merchandise.


Community Heroes Appreciation:

In partnership with Lenovo, NC Courage has been involved in a new Community Heroes Appreciation Program! As the official technology partner of NCFC and the NC Courage, Lenovo aligns with the club’s mission to give back to those who serve the local community, while also providing quality educational opportunities for future community leaders.

The Community Heroes Appreciation Program will recognize community heroes in the triangle community at various NC Courage and NCFC matches throughout the season. Through this program, one-hundred tickets to one (1) game each month will be donated to military personnel, first responders, teachers and healthcare professionals, in addition to season-long special discounts and in-game recognition.

Youth Development:

Blue Cross NC and North Carolina FC Youth formed a Partnership to Support Youth Development.

A major component of this partnership focuses on a shared commitment to cultivate diverse, inclusive and healthy communities. Blue Cross NC will support the following community outreach programs:

La Liga Del Sol: Alleviates financial, cultural and communication barriers to make youth soccer more accessible to a diverse make-up of players.


The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer): Offers player development opportunities and peer mentoring for differently-abled athletes up to age 18.
