The ribbon was cut and the first soccer balls kicked around at the Woodhaven Elementary School, PS 60, where a new mini-pitch was opened last Thursday.

A consortium that includes the professional New York City Football Club, Addidas and the Abu Dhabi state airlines, Etihad Airways, funded the playground pitch, which is about one-third the size of a regulation field.

Assemblyman Mike Miller, left, and Community Board 9 chairman Kenichi Wilson, second from left, joined students and sponsors at the opening ceremonies.

It’s the fifth soccer pitch built in Queens as part of the city’s Soccer Initiative.
