Each April, dozens of teams and hundreds of players from all walks of media, entertainment and marketing—from New York City and all points internationally—take the pitch at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 5 for a full day of spirited five-a-side competition. One team from each of three categories walks away with the trophy. In the media center of the world and a fast-emerging global capital for the sport, a striking representation of the extraordinary connection between soccer and the creative community.
