‘Football Beyond Walls’ was an initiative for the charity, Football Beyond Borders, that paired young people with professional footballers to have a game of FIFA’20 and a meaningful conversation about their lives.


It launched with a four-minute film featuring Fulham FC footballer and mental health advocate, Cyrus Christie, juxtaposing the highs and lows of a game of FIFA’20 against those of mental health. All the content was filmed in their own homes during lockdown, with remote direction adding a higher level of quality to the production despite the restrictions.
