D.C. United is one of Major League Soccer’s most storied clubs. After 21 years at RFK Stadium the four-time MLS Cup champions moved into their new home at Audi Field. When the Black-and-Red needed a partner to help generate excitement and sell premium seats they turned to Bluetext.
What we gave them was something GOALden.
Bluetext created a multi-touch, multi-channel campaign which delivered messaging across multiple digital channels, social media, email and microsites.
