Urban Initiatives invites you to a corporate soccer tournament presented by Optiver featuring friendly competition, team building, and representatives from 32 Chicagoland companies – the Corporate Challenge Cup. On Saturday, July 16, 2016 – in support of the 15,000 Chicago Public Schools students in Urban Initiatives’ programs – an estimated 320 Chicago professionals will gather at Humboldt Park to compete for bragging rights for a full year. This 7v7 soccer tournament will end with only one winner being crowned. All teams will be playing hard to benefit the students in Urban Initiatives’ sports-based youth development programs.
The Corporate Challenge Cup spreads the love of the beautiful game and aligns with our innovative Work to Play program, which uses soccer to motivate children to adopt healthy lifestyles, develop stronger character, and reach higher academic achievement. Additionally, music, food, and beer make for a fun-filled afternoon.
