The Milan Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International is proud to sponsor the Collegio Gallio youth soccer team from Como, Italy in their participation in the first annual Chicago KICS Cup International Youth Soccer Tournament that will take place July 19–26, 2014. The KICS Cup will bring in over 100 youth soccer teams including local, national and international teams, as well as their families and friends.
For the team, it will be a great experience to not only take part in what is to become a major youth soccer tournament, but also have a cultural immersion into Chicago while interacting with other teams from around the world.
To welcome the team to Chicago, the Milan Committee will host a free reception on Sunday, July 20 from 4:30-6:30 pm in the Chicago Cultural Center’s 5th Floor Millennium Park Room before the Opening Ceremony of the tournament in Millennium Park at 7 pm. Guests are invited to celebrate and welcome the team to Chicago. Food and beverage will be served.
