To bring awareness of our oceans, MLS, adidas and Parley use Snapchat to get the word out

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF MLS COMMUNICATIONS

New York (April 19, 2018) – Continuing their efforts to raise widespread awareness and inspire action around the harmful impact of marine plastic pollution, Major League Soccer, adidas and Parley for the Oceans have created a unique immersive augmented reality experience using Snapchat’s Lens Studio.

This custom lens, available to Snapchat users across the country and at those MLS stadiums hosting games this Earth Day weekend, will bring to life the majestic beauty of the ocean with a massive 3D whale jumping out of the background making a “big splash” with those watching.

Starting at 7 p.m. ET on April 20, the experience will be available in select cities (Columbus, OH; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Kansas City, KS; Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; Orlando, FL; Portland, OR; Salt Lake City, UT; Seattle, WA; and Montreal, Canada) as well as for any Snapchat user who finds the lens in their Snapchat carousel. For those at the MLS matches, fans can find the QR code listed below as well as on signs throughout each stadium and on MLS and clubs’ socials channels which can be scanned to immediately save the lens to their Snapchat profile for 24 hours.

Similar to the just-announced collaboration among Major League Soccer, adidas and Parley for the Oceans to create full customized uniforms built of technical yarns made by using Parley Ocean Plastic™, this use of augmented reality illustrates innovative efforts to educate consumers on the movement to end harmful plastic pollution and protect the oceans.

The main goal of the collaboration is to end the use of plastic by reinventing and replacing it with eco-innovative alternatives, and these jerseys carry this message to soccer fans across the country. This Earth Day week, everyone is invited to join MLS, adidas and Parley in their shared pledge to intercept plastic before it gets into our oceans.

Media Interview Opportunities: Interview opportunities to discuss this creative collaboration are available upon request with Major League Soccer, adidas and Parley for the Oceans spokespersons.

Crew SC comes into Saturday after its second straight road loss at D.C. United last week. United’s Ulises Segura scored the game winning goal just 43 seconds into the match and Crew SC pushed for an equalizer but were unable to find the back of the net. The Black & Gold dominated shots (24-5), shots on-target (5-1), blocked shots (7-0), possession (70%-30%) and passing percentage (85%-65%).

The Revolutions’ 11-match unbeaten home game streak was snapped by FC Dallas last Saturday. The 76th-minute goal was enough to put Dallas through with maximum points, despite being out-possessed and out-shot by New England.

Crew SC won each of its last four home games against Revolution. The teams last met at MAPRE Stadium on May 6, 2017, in a 2-0 win for Crew SC. The matchup will also see New England head coach Brad Friedel return to MAPFRE Stadium, this time as the opponent, after starting his Major League Soccer career with Charter Member No. 1 in 1996.

New England Revolution, today’s Crew SC opponent; original MLS member

INFORMATION WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF WIKIPEDIA COMMONS

 


 

The New England Revolution is a professional soccer team from the Greater Boston area. They are located in the suburb of Foxborough, Massachusetts, located 21 miles southwest of downtown Boston. It is also home to their Robert Kraft family-owned brethren, the New England Patriots.

The Revs, as they are called by their loyal fan base, are one of the original members of the MLS. Only ten teams can say they have been around since the inaugural season of 1994, which is now 24 years.

The name “Revolution” refers to the New England region’s significant involvement in the American Revolution that took place from 1775-1783.

The Revs hold the distinction of being the only original MLS team to have every league game in its history televised.

The Revolution won their first major trophy in the 2007 U.S. Open Cup. The following year, they won the 2008 North American SuperLiga. The Revolution have participated in five MLS Cup finals in 2002200520062007, and 2014. They also earned the second best regular season record in 2005. However, they have never won an MLS Cup or MLS Supporters’ Shield.
