Comprised of six virtual spaces, “School of Sport” takes place at DICK’S Sporting Goods High and mimics the characteristics of a real-world high school, bringing the most compelling aspects of back to school on Roblox.
“It’s important to us to continue to evolve the way we interact with consumers. We’re excited to step into the Metaverse with ‘School of Sport’, creating a space to share sport and style while we connecting with our young athletes,” said Ed PlummerMarketing Director at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
DICK’S Sporting Goods launches the largest Sport your style back-to-school campaign, which emphasizes versatility and encourages teens to take ownership of their own style. While this theme is woven throughout the “School of Sport” experience, it is most prominent in the first environment of the Roblox experience, The Locker Room, where the transition from sport to style typically occurs in the real world school.
“School of Sport” by DICK’S Sporting Goods is currently live on Roblox and available by visiting: https://www.roblox.com/games/10319501620/School-of-Sport
