Soccer clubs were forced to trade in game days for isolated backyard training. An industry valued at approximately $17 billion was in dire need of creative digital solutions to keep players active and engaged during months of quarantine and seasons of social distancing.

TopYa!’s platform manifested itself as the clear choice for clubs desperate to keep their players happy and active during an uncertain time. Along with a surge of demand, however, came the submerge of human resource to handle the growing company’s marketing needs.

In the wake of 2020’s COVID-19 crisis, the realisation from TopYa! was that their virtual solution for the world’s physically inactive generation became not just a luxury… it was a necessity.

We helped TopYa! resource and pivot their virtual solution marketing by leveraging the colossal shift in the youth sports market. The aim was to drive prospective soccer club leads directly through the TopYa! sales funnel.
