George M. Zielbauer Scholarship

George M. Zielbauer Scholarship Fund

To Honor the Memory of a Founding Member of the Aurora Kickers Soccer Club

George M. Zielbaur (1939-2014) was passionate about playing soccer and providing a place for others to enjoy the great game as both a sport and social activity.  George was born in Elek, Hungary and spent several years of his early childhood in Bavaria.  In 1955, he immigrated to the United States with his family and settled in Aurora, IL .   In 1959, he and a group of other young soccer players formed the Aurora Kickers Soccer Club.  

This fund was established by the Zielbauer Family and is supported by Kickers SC.  

"To honor his love for the sport, and to assist promising young players - particularly those from disadvantaged or immigrant backgrounds - advance their access to soccer, we are creating the George M. Zielbauer Soccer Scholarship Fund."  -- Zielbauer Family
