The DireWolves Airsoft Team is a professional Airsoft team comprised of members around the Greater Toronto Area. With a growing player base, they came to Virtually(Creative) to create a strong online presence for the team both through their website and social media accounts.
They required several advanced features to allow them to have the online community feel they expect from professional sports team websites, but they are looking to help promote Airsoft as a growing sport in Canada and around Ontario specifically.
With social media and team community being important aspects, the Direwolves website is a specialized BBpress+ Buddypress / WooCommerce theme that is WPML ready and syncs with major social networks (Facebook login and auto page publishing).

BuddyPress’s out of the box configuration allowed the Direwolves to achieve a private social media-like community within the Direwolves.ca website.
Using forums, live activity (status) updates and Groups, Buddypress lets Direwovles teammates organize around similar topics and helps organize events.
