SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes are partnering with Oakland-based brand, Black Arrow FC, to produce original content for the team’s Club Room on Apple TV’s MLS Season Pass.
Black Arrow FC and the Earthquakes will create a co-branded film series, featuring untold stories of the club’s players, diving deeper into their background and personalities, and spotlighting their efforts on and off the pitch. In addition, with both parties focusing on growing the game in the black community, a ‘mini-doc’ will also be produced to authentically tell the story of an influencer’s first time experiencing the San Jose Earthquakes brand and match day experience at PayPal Park. Each video will live exclusively on MLS Season Pass at the time of release before later being published on YouTube.
Black Arrow FC has worked with global brands such as English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, Italian Serie A side AS Roma, U.S. Soccer, and many more. The rising creative agency can be followed on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
“We are excited to be working with the Quakes,” said Oakland native and Black Arrow FC founder Aaron Dolores. “Beyond their rich history in MLS, the current roster consists of many players with diverse stories and interests that we are excited to bring to light.”
