ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- New Mexico United is celebrated its one year anniversary Wednesday.


The team isn’t only bringing fans together, they are also giving back to the community.

Players spent time visiting the children at UNM Hospital Wednesday.

“I want to be a professional soccer player one day and hopefully I can play for New Mexico United,” Casey Harrison said after meeting the players.

The team takes pride in bringing joy and uniting the people of New Mexico.

“I can honestly say I've had two or three influential adults that really had an impact with me,” United forward David Estrada. “That's something that for me really pushed me forward and I hope that we can do the same for kids.”

United has seen a tremendous amount of success in its first year.

New Mexico United has the high attendance number in the league.
