The Philadelphia KiXX announced today that the club has partnered with Citizens Bank and the Haddon Heights Soccer Club to present the inaugural Citizens Bank Philadelphia KiXX 3v3 Challenge at Haddon Heights. The tournament is offered to male and female players of all ages with the boys/men’s competition scheduled for September 25 and the girls/women’s bracket slated for September 26. All games will be held at the Haddon Heights Soccer Field, which is located off Devon Road in Haddon Heights, NJ.
WXTU 92.5 FM and WRDW WIRED 96.5 FM have signed on as the exclusive media partners of the event. Donato’s Pizza, Sports Authority and JAKO USA join Citizens Bank as corporate partners. Along with outstanding soccer action, the 3v3 Challenge will feature a soccer village consisting of various food, merchant, and entertainment venues.
Each participating team is guaranteed a minimum of three games, each 24 minutes in length, versus teams of similar age and skill. For each win, the team is awarded two points, while a tie garners one point; if necessary, a tie-breaker system will be used to determine the overall winner of that particular age group. Each player receives an official tournament T-shirt and a voucher to the 2004-05 KiXX home opener. In addition, prizes will be awarded to the champions of each age bracket.
