TRO produces permanent five-a-side football pitch for Nike

Experiential agency TRO has created a football pitch complete with a locker room to promote Nike's new Magista boot in Shoreditch, London.

The success of the experience, which originally was meant to run for a week, has meant Nike will run the installation as a permanent fixture at the Boxpark Powerleague site.

The pitch was built amongst the existing Powerleague pitches at the venue, and a container was converted into a branded Magista locker room. Nike invited teenagers to sign-up and try out the boot for themselves on the pitch.

The experience was given added authenticity with the addition of a Nike referee.

TRO said they wanted to create a space which felt "urban and gritty" without detracting away from the premium standard of Nike.

The agency has previously worked with Nike to produce special events for Nike+ run clubs. It has also produced sporting experiences for Pink Lady apples, Lucozade Sport and BMW.
