About us

Art Of Soccer 

This campaign allows Houstonian businesses to support the Houston 2026 World Cup Bid Committee by financially backing the bid and demonstrating our community’s enthusiasm for being a host city. 

Like the Houston Livestock & Rodeo Boot Art Contest, this campaign includes three foot painted soccer balls. Participants choose to decorate the soccer balls using their own creativity.

Participants will display their soccer balls at their place of business during the campaign.

Public events will be organized where the soccer balls are collectively displayed in high-traffic areas around Houston.
