The Story

The Premier Lacrosse League was looking for an innovative way to drive tune-in to their 2020 Championship Series, one of the first big sporting events to return during the pandemic.

That, and they wanted to continue to build the brands of their players on social media during a high visibility event. 

Slate became the perfect solution.

The PLL decided to empower all of their players with their own Slate apps, filled with
creative that would drive league, team, and player branding, as well as promote tune-in.

The players immediately took to the platform, creating unique and engaging content using PLL provided assets.

Behind-the-scenes training camp content started at the beginning of July and there were no dull moments throughout the rest of the summer. Not only did the players promote their games, but they gave access to moments that fans wouldn’t normally get to see, like gaming in their hotel rooms between practices – building upon the brand identities of all involved.

With Slate, the PLL was able to drive a 20% uptick in their tune-in goals with a heavy focus on the digital stream.

Slate helped us to think strategically and
prioritize the speed of content production
throughout the Championship Series.
