My name is Martin Schulz and sports have always been integral to my professional and social life. When I was a child, my parents put me in a soccer league to expand my social life and to find an outlet for my hyperactivity. I was so happy they gave this direction to me as ~I have carried this right through to my early adulthood when I got to play sports in high school and straight through college.
But why did I gravitate toward soccer rather than another sport? First of all, soccer is the most well-known sport in the world, and this was a huge attraction for me. Other than soccer, a huge passion of mine has been to travel. I have been all over the world, to almost every country in Europe, South America, Australia, and Africa.
Wherever I go, even though we don’t speak the same language, there is always something that can bring us together: our love of soccer. Even though there is a language barrier, I bring my ball with me everywhere I go to break the ice and break down differences between us.
That is the power of sport, and most importantly I find, the power of soccer, which is why I’ve put this website together so hopefully more people can experience the joy I’ve found in the beautiful game!
