“Agencies are coming out smoking hot, sword drawn, guns blazing. Just about everything they have in their arsenal. The battle line is drawn. But, hey, it’s just a fight for honour, a duel like no other. So, if you’re a player, get ready , Be prepared or you might get knocked out early. And if you’re a cheerleader, be ready to motivate your team. It’s victory or nothing!
“This is a pitch. The football pitch. ANd guys, it’s online. It’s time to kick some balls! Let’s go, guys!”‘
