Ya pretty cool that Ninja will be repping the Red Bulls. He has a huge following especially with younger generation. Over 5M twitter followers.

Man we're really out to prove we're just a bunch of old farts today lol

 

Ninja is one of the biggest personalities in online gaming, if you have a teenage kid they'll know who he is. He's what we'd call "hip", "cool" and the "bees knees".

Exactly.  Everyone complaining about lack of marketing, looking for commercials and billboards, needs to understand how big this type of real marketing is.

Are we really trying to attract teenage kids to come watch a soccer game, kids that watch other people play video games instead of playing them themselves don't seem to be interested in anything offline. But yea I'm just an old fart who thinks ninjas are cool characters in old kung fu movies.

Yeah, why not?

 

It's wild how "normal" soccer is to that generation. I'm 32 and feel like I'm right at the cusp of where soccer went from being a niche sport to just a sport. I have cousins a few years younger than me that talk about EPL and MLS as casually as we're used to hearing about MLB and NFL. I'd much rather try to convince a 22 year old to get off his computer than try to convince a gen x'er to embrace a sport that they've spent their whole lives culturally dismissing.

 

And the funny thing is, I'm convinced video games had a lot to do with that cultural shift. Madden dominated sports games for years until EA started to invest more in FIFA. By the mid 2010's FIFA had improved so much that it surpassed Madden as their best selling sports franchise. Tens of million of copies of that game are sold each year in North America. That's millions of kids who are now learning the rules, the different leagues, the biggest players, just because its what their friends do for fun.

Appreciate your comment and it makes sense, unlike the other fools who prefer one or two word comments most of which aren't even words. The problem I still have is that yes the kids know about soccer, but like their parents who only watch "proper football" like EPL the kids love to play fifa, but will they come out to RBA instead of playing their video games? I don't know but hope I'm wrong because we keep losing long time fans and new fans are not invested in the team enough to watch buckmasters kick the ball around when they could watch ninja.

I don't know. Maybe MLS should just not try at all just in case.

It means "Fixed That For You."   Pretty sure my adult children and big gray beard puts me in the old fart category as well.

 

"kids that watch other people play video games" is no different than people who watch other people play soccer.

 

FIFA has been nothing short of magic in terms of getting "kids" interested and knowledgeable about soccer.   My son's friends who never played the game all picked up an interest and have started going to games largely because of it.
