Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) developed Portland World Soccer in 2010. The tournament brings to the pitch a celebration of cultural traditions and diversity, an enrichment event that links culturally diverse communities, the Portland community, and the City of Portland. This event is a gathering for Portland’s youth to kick for a common purpose.

In 2015, several city bureaus and local community organizations joined together to host the Portland World Soccer at Delta Park. The tournament included 28 teams representing more than 30 countries, 30 languages, and 500 players between the ages of 15 and 20.
