More Events, More Cities: Kick It 3v3 has Big Plans for 2022

 

DENVER, COLORADO – (Oct. 20, 2021) – Kick It 3v3 (Kick It), the first and largest grassroots small-sided soccer tournament tour in North America, announced its 2022 plans including hosting more than 150 events in markets nationwide. Owned by Basketball Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett’s Big Ticket Sports LLC (BTS), Kick It also revealed today the formation of the Kick It 3v3 Official Supporters Club, which is being launched as part of the property’s strategic vision for the year. The Official Supporters Club is a network of professionals who support Kick It – creating a venerable “brain trust” that will include influential industry professionals whose aim is to grow the property.

 

In 2022, Kick It seeks to expand its reach by introducing new soccer tournaments and events throughout the country, thus bringing together communities to celebrate and compete in the beautiful game. In addition, Kick It will aim to make competition more accessible to communities throughout the USA, allowing a broader and more diverse audience the opportunity to enjoy Kick It’s event experience, digital content, and soccer training. Kick It is an active, fun competition full of family-friendly events with activities for players ages 6 to 12 and spectators.

 

Commenting on the future of Kick it 3v3, Garnett said: “The potential for Kick It is limitless given the continued exponential growth of the game of soccer here in the U.S.  Much like the success we experienced with Hoop It Up, we look forward to seeing Kick It events in dozens of cities across the country, providing inclusive competition and fun for young players of all abilities.”

 

George Daniel, CEO of Kick It 3v3, said: “Our outlook for 2022 is robust as we expect to draw a half million spectators through our doors at more than 150 events nationwide. Kick It is a great way for kids to have fun and develop their soccer skills. Furthermore, because of the significant grassroots element of this event, there’s an emotional link between 3v3 and consumer brands whereby they connect and build awareness through a key passion for consumers: soccer.”

 

For over 30 years, Kick It’s mission is simple: To provide every player a fun, rewarding, and educational platform to develop and practice the fundamental skills of soccer. The Kick It game is fast, features lots of touches, and promotes the basic technical skills needed to develop soccer players.
