Explaining The Craze

The soccer world percept of the pin is mostly as a keep stake for participation in a tournament and is usually distributed to the coaches prior to the tournament. Usually the pins are about 1″ in size and incorporate the tournament logo. On some occasions pins are awarded in addition to a place medal or trophy.

The pin designs can get quite detailed but pin enhancements are rare given the size of the pins. The kids will attach the pins to their bags as badges of honor for the tournaments that they’ve participated or put them in a display case or other presentation along with their other awards. Soccer pins are not traded unlike Little League® or Softball, because they are meant to commemorate events.
