For the very first time, we will combine two favourite events on the Kick It calendar – the hugely popular Cash Day tournament and the Charity Shield event featuring LIVIN.
The cash prize event re-surfaces for the first time since 2017 where Taringa-studs Next-Gen Untouchables won the day.
The charity component of the event symbolises an important seven-year partnership with LIVIN and creating crucial awareness for mental health and depression.
Such is the nature of the event, a number of fantastic and charitable businesses have jumped on board to help out with the cash award and player/team prizes (see sponsors list below).
The Cash Tournament returns after an amazing streak of events dating back to 2010.
Past champions Young Guns, Swoop, Team Freaks, Muffin Stuffers and Pakas to name a few; live on in infamously in Kick It History
Swoop (blue) boast the best record in Kick It, dropping just one game over their five-year stretch, including winning the 2011 & 2012 cash day events.
Young Guns (purple) comprising of players from multiple gun sides, won four straight Cash day events including 2010, 11, 12 and 15.
One of the best aspects of the tournament is that it attracts teams from all sports and all backgrounds.
Some of the most successful teams are those outside of Kick It.
Pakas dominated the mens group in the 2016 tournament at Carseldine, while their mixed side were runners up in the final.
Team Freaks (pictured right) defeated Pink Bits in one of the most competitive mixed finals in history.
The effort was even more remarkable given Pink Bits had gone through 2015 undefeated in four finals at Shaw Road.
LIVIN Charity Shield
Since 2015, Kick It Touch and LIVIN have teamed up to raise awareness for mental health with sporting events.
Through these appearances and with the help of all participants and sponsors, we are able to make a contribution using the event profits.
Over the last seven years, we have be fortunate enough to donation thousands of dollars towards the LIVEWell program aimed towards kids and young people.
Since the first tournament at Taringa, some outstanding winners have been crowned.
Kickaholics Anonymous, Woof, Zooper Doopers, Dodgers, The Misfits, Try Babies and Spartans to name a handful.
Many of these teams are present and past Kick It teams which is fantastic to see.
As with our past events, in 2021 we will make a sizeable contribution to LIVIN using the profits from the event. Thats reason to get involved!
