DynCorp International (DI) is a proud sponsor of the American University of Afghanistan’s International Campus, and its soccer field was recently named the DynCorp International field.
The field is used by the university’s men’s and women’s soccer teams, as well as by the International School of Kabul and several Kabul area orphanages. Regarded as one of the finest soccer fields in the region, the Afghan national team has also utilized the grounds. In October 2012, the field was the site of the first intercollegiate soccer tournament involving six teams from Kabul area universities.
“DynCorp International is proud to support global education and community development opportunities as part of serving for a better tomorrow,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO of DynCorp International. “With so many of our team members working in support of programs to improve communities all over the world, we are honored to have the opportunity to support the American University of Afghanistan.”
