Jul 2022 | Rotterdam | Red Bull
With his quick feet and a keen eye for the goal, Dutch National football player and striker for FC Barcelona Memphis Depay is this year’s newly announced Red Bull athlete. And what better way to celebrate it than to have a kick around? But this time not in a big sports arena but at the Onderzeebootloods in Rotterdam, the Netherlands instead. During the event “Red Bull Street Rhythm by Memphis Depay”, which was held last week, on the 2nd of July, two passions of the famous striker were brought together: street football and hip-hop.
Memphis invited 8 captains to put together their best team of 5 players for a street football tournament. The captains included well-known names from both the music and football worlds like Edgar Davids, Steven Bergwijn, Winne Jairzinho and Akwasi to name just a few.
This was the first time Red Bull held such a launch and we were pleased to have been involved in the process. Team Backbone was responsible for the production management and technical production of the event, which included among other things creating a panna area and stacking up several shipping containers to create the street look & feel.
