As everyone knows, the lifeblood of soccer is the supporters. They're the energy that powers the game, inspires the players, gives true meaning to the 90 minutes.
Throughout the first decade of K+S, we've been lucky enough to have amazing supporters. Not only you, the festival attendees, who turn out every year to express your love of the game and share your soccer stories with us, but also the companies and organizations who through the years have provided support, guidance, promotion, and more.
Here are the partners and friends who are supporting us in 2018. Please support them in return.
