D*Face’s “Don’t’ Call It Soccer” Ad in Times Square

August 9, 2013 | Bucky Turco

To promote its coverage of a bunch of upcoming soccer games in the UK known as the Premier League to New Yorkers and tourists alike, NBC Sports enlisted UK street artist D*Face to create a massive Times Square billboard. “Don’t call it soccer. It’s football… just not as you know it,” reads the ad, portions of which were hand painted by the artist himself.
