What is the Hugo Bustamente AYSO Playership Fund?

The fund is built on the idea that all children should have the opportunity to play soccer, regardless of financial limitations. In 2009, Coach Bustamante helped lead the 10U girls team, Cypress Cyclones, in a run towards their regional soccer championship. After losing in a close match vs. a team from Huntington Park, his team found out that they would advance because their opponent withdrew because they couldn’t afford the travel costs needed to continue. Bustamante made the noble decision to organize a fundraising effort to cover his opponent’s costs instead of having his own team advance.

Sadly, just weeks after his fundraising efforts succeeded in sending the Huntington Park American Eagles to the finals, Bustamante was tragically killed. His memory and kind-hearted spirit live on through the Hugo Bustamante AYSO Playership fund and all the young players who have been given the chance to play soccer because of his legacy.
