The KIXEYE Cup
The SCORES Cup is an annual 8v8 co-ed charity soccer tournament that brings together corporate and independent teams looking to play soccer for a great cause, participate in valuable team building, and make a difference in their community. KIXEYE generously donated $2,500 to the America SCORES program, and 14 of us joined together for an awesome day on the pitch. All funds raised from the tournament support the America SCORES program, which enables urban youth from under-resourced communities to lead healthy lives – both as students and as people.
Although KIXEYE was a late entry into the tournament, we managed to put together a strong team of players from all across the company. The team faced tough squads from JP Morgan/Google, Wells Fargo, and Electronic Arts in back-to-back games with 15-minute halves. After a break for lunch in the afternoon where we learned more about the America SCORES program and the people it benefits, we fought bravely into the semi-finals by beating the KPMG/Silverwood team in the first playoff game. Unfortunately, we lost to Goldman Sachs in the second game, but we’ll be back next year to have our revenge! Thanks to the America SCORES program for a great day.
