The City of El Monte honored Fox Sports World Español for the network's participation in the American Youth Soccer Organization's (AYSO) Region 908 3rd Annual All Star Warm-Up Tournament. On Tuesday February 6, El Monte Mayor Rachel Montes and members of the City Council presented Fox Sports World Español, with a plaque in recognition of the network's support to city's soccer programs.

Proceeds from the 3rd Annual All Star Warm-Up were used to purchase uniforms and equipment, as well as provided scholarships for youths that require financial assistance to participate. More than 100 boys and girls teams from AYSO Sections 1, 10, 11 participated representing several communities in Southern California including teams from El Monte, Pasadena, Ojai, Newport Beach, Malibu, San Gabriel and El Monte.
