Few people associated Xperia with Sony’s ongoing sponsorship of the UCL – a missed opportunity to drive engagement & impact with fans of both the competition and football.
Our people-first strategy
The power of football isn’t about the action on the pitch, it’s about the power of those moments to trigger tribalism that plays out in parallel to the game on social media and across geographical boundaries.
Our creative idea
In a twitter-first, we turned the cameras around & focused on real fans across Europe to capture real time fan reactions to the action on the pitch, which we instantly seeded on Twitter.
We turned Twitter into a pan-European broadcast platform with fans at the heart of the action that engaged & entertained nearly 30 million football fans across Europe.
