Rio Ferdinand is regarded by many to be one of the greatest ever players, he is one of the most decorated English footballers of all time and he played in a tournament similar to the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup when he was in school! He played 81 times for England and over the course of 12 memorable years at Manchester United won 6 Premier League titles, 2 League Cups, 1 FIFA World Cup and 1 European Champions League.
Alongside his career on the pitch, Rio launched his own digital and lifestyle brand, FIVE, in 2010. Gaining from his own personal experience, FIVE is all about providing comfortable leisurewear that withstands your dedication on the pitch but leaves you looking good in any environment.
Rio’s intention with FIVE is to celebrate football culture and make it more inclusive to all. Whether you like to play football on the field or on your PlayStation it’s all about creating conversation which is exactly what he is hoping will happen with the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup concept kit designs.
