Crunchyroll will be supporting German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund (BVB) and national nonprofit organization Street Soccer USA for their second annual “Street Soccer Times Square Cup presented by BVB” in Father Duffy Square in New York City. The anime streamer will be onsite to cheer on competitors in the 4v4 Youth Cup soccer competition with a sponsored tent with One Piece anime giveaways. Crunchyroll will also be lacing up their cleats to compete in the Corporate Cup and plans to host a screening party of the newest episode of One Piece at nearby retailer Péle Soccer for fans after the tournament ends.
As part of the Youth Cup, players will be outfitted in the black and yellow colored uniforms of Borussia Dortmund and be treated to special appearances from mascot, Emma Bee, and Borussia Dortmund player legend, Roman Weidenfeller. (BVB Press Release)
