Kickers Soccer Services Presented by Jim Fischer Executive Summary Soccer is a sport that in the last 20 years has experienced a marked growth in the number of the people who play the game, especially at the youth level. However in some areas, especially around Philadelphia, this growth has been hampered by the lack of available field space and the volunteers to maintain what space is available. Kicker’s Soccer Services was formed to help address that issue. The five owners of the company have over 150 years experience involved in the game as players, coaches, referees, league, and club administrators. Our concept is that we are experts in planning, marketing, and running indoor and outdoor tournaments. Soccer tournaments provide the biggest ROI for an organization. To address the field space concern we have obtained permits to public areas in and around Philadelphia to host outdoor soccer events and have agreements in place with many indoor facilities to host events as well. Kicker’s also offers field maintenance and lining services so that organizations can focus on teaching and coaching the players of today and tomorrow. After all, soccer should be about the kids. Our web site has links that detail each of our services, and the pricing models for each one. Upon receipt of your inquiry one of the owners will contact you to discuss specifics. We can tailor our services to your needs. Business Description Industry – Soccer tournament and field organization.
