Cape Town City Football Club
Digital Content Partner
Creative Development, Ideation & Strategy
Digital Media Marketing
When the Cape Town City FC team was re-formed in 2016, they were looking for a creative partner to tell the story of football in South Africa. We were tasked with the role of showcasing an honest and authentic portrayal of the City FC team and most importantly the community of fans that support the sport in this country. From the stills on match day and training to short branded content videos and new kit reveals.
Partnering with Cape Town City FC is a collaboration and always-on approach to creative content. The teams working on City FC will vary, depending on the deliverable, we have micro-cinematic teams as well as a single shooter and editor, executing same day turn around. Longer form creative strategies will require development, production, and post, leading to full digital rollout. Working closely with the client and the players in an intimate setting, we are able to execute quickly based on the trust built over the years working with the team.
