Co-founder Francisco Terreros with children from the Tulum Indian tribe

Hanging Cleats (tax ID number: 82-0568034) is a non-profit organization with one goal in mind, to provide a better path for underprivileged children in a world where drugs, gangs and violence dominate their lives.


Our mission is to empower at-risk youth around the world where drugs and violence are predominant in their lives; we teach them how to use football as a tool to enrich their lives on and off the pitch. We teach them leadership skills, how to work as a team and individually and other football-related skills to help them succeed and have brighter futures.


Hanging Cleats was founded by Felkrem, an athlete management agency who believe that football/soccer is more than just a game; where the sport is all about its beauty and not about winning. To learn more about Felkrem, visit our website www.felkrem.com


Our missions to these areas consist of three basic projects:

  1. Construction or reconstruction of soccer fields, building new goals, stands, and cleaning
    the pitch.
  2. Donation of soccer related equipment, giving new and/or used soccer balls, cleats,
    shin guards, socks, shorts and jerseys.
  3. Soccer Clinics, teaching basic and advanced soccer skills, leadership and group building
