CANTON, OH - November 15, 2010 - Helping the less fortunate through the game of soccer is a common mission for both the Ohio Vortex and Otto Orf's HandsOnSports Foundation. 

The Canton, Ohio based Vortex have selected the HandsOnSports Foundation as a game night partner for Friday, November 19th.  Proceeds from that night's ticket sales will go directly to Orf's non-profit that is planning to build an inner-city futsal court in Akron, Ohio.

"It is a win-win situation," Orf commented. "It is a great thing for Canton, a great thing for Northeast Ohio, and a great thing for the less fortunate." 

The former Cleveland Crunch and Cleveland Force goalkeeper is excited about the Vortex, who play in the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL-Pro).  "It is a great opportunity to promote the local talent that we have," Orf, a player with 21 years of professional soccer experience, stated.

The Vortex are likewise excited about working with Orf and HandsOnSports.  “Otto's  HandsOnSports Foundation does important work in many communities as he reaches a lot of less fortunate kids and helps expose them to the sport of soccer,” Ohio Vortex founder Nick Bogdan declared. “You never know if one of them will be the next Pelé.”

Tickets for the November 19th matchup between the Vortex and Eastern Division rivals the Cincinnati Kings can be ordered at or by calling 330-354-7778.
