Show your five

Screw jumpers for goalposts. This is proper football.

For the first time ever Nike made a range of kit designed specifically for
cage football and wanted to engage with the UK's urban 5-a-side footballers.
Our campaign Show Your Five took its inspiration from the UK's modern
surveillance society and the extent to which teenagers daily lives are captured
on film. We turned CCTV from spy cam to spotlight, converted 'hoodies' to
heroes, and celebrated grassroots inner-city football as a legitimate form of
the game.

Across the country we recruited players and 5-aside teams to compete in a national competition with final held at London’s Ally Pally.

Teams could build profiles, check out the rivals, claim pitches and watch each round of the competition.

Wayne getting nutmeggged for a set of Derby tickets went huge - across the web, footy magazines and traditional media.
