Our solution came to life as the IPLAYFOR campaign. We created comprehensive brand identities for each of Street Soccer’s 19 teams, and chose team names based on the life goals these homeless players strive for. We also created posters, web banners, guerilla art, a TV spot and a Times Square billboard. gave Street Soccer a prominent presence online. Players and fans around the world used it to connect with and support each other. The momentum of IPLAYFOR even convinced the City of New York to allow Street Soccer to host its National Cup in the middle of Times Square
IPLAYFOR called attention to a little-known national organization. Every piece of communication centered on the homeless players and their real-life goals. This added human element differentiated Street Soccer from other charities by giving communities something interact with, but more importantly, something to root for.
