It’s not often that a sport that has been a global phenomenon since the beginning of the 20th century has so successfully embraced art as a whole.
But that’s exactly what happened in the 2014-15 season with the creation of the new World Cup of Black Art.
The event featured the creation and exhibition of hundreds of artworks of various sizes, shapes, and styles, created by artists of various nationalities, and displayed in all manner of venues.
In the end, more than 3,000 artists from all over the world participated, with the event taking place in the former Black Chamber of Commerce of Johannesburg, a venue that was originally constructed in the 1930s and was built on land owned by the colonial rulers of South Africa.
It was the first event of its kind in Africa and the first to feature a team from a football-playing nation, with several teams from the United States, Italy, Spain, Greece, and the Netherlands participating.
The event also featured a host of other notable football players, such as Brazilian defender and former World Cup champion Neymar, as well as former Brazilian football player Neymar Ribeiro, who became the first African to be crowned FIFA World Player of the Year.
And as a result, the event garnered international acclaim and a large amount of coverage from the media.
The international press coverage included a wide range of outlets from ESPN to CNN, the BBC, and even the BBC World Service.
And in some cases, the coverage was even more positive than the events themselves, with many of the highlights coming from the sport itself.
For example, the first article on the site appeared with a headline that read “It was beautiful, it was football, and it was black art”.
And as we all know, it is.
