KICS International Showcase “Empowering Global Unity” – KICS is working to advance peace through soccer with competition, camaraderie and cultural exchange. Since 2014, KICS has been hosting our annual international youth soccer tournament each summer in the Near South and Near West neighborhoods of Chicago. The tournament brings 100 plus, local, regional and international teams together in competition for the coveted KICS CUP. If the world could speak one language, that language would be soccer. With a goal of scaling our tournament to 200 teams by 2021, KICS fosters soccer as an opportunity to speak to one another to make the world a more peaceful place. Our showcase has now welcomed players from over 18 different countries to Chicago.
