BizBash highlighted Chicago Fire FC and Continental Tire’s “Drive-In Matchday” during the #MLSIsBack Tournament. The sponsored event hosted 300 cars outside Soldier Field, bringing fans safely together to watch and cheer on their favorite soccer team. Chief Creative Officer Brian Quarles talked with the outlet about the importance of these meaningful fan connections during this time, stating, ““In this time of COVID-19, we believe that it’s a misnomer to say that games are happening without fans … While fans may not be present, the fans are still there and they are looking for opportunities to engage with the team and other fans in a safe manner. The key to any successful activation, with or without fans present, is adding (not distracting) from their experience. The best teams (and sponsors of those teams) successfully do just that.”
