The Multicultural Championship illustrated the truly global nature of football, positively placing the brand at the heart of the conversation about sport, migration, Brexit and more.
The impact was clear:
- Worldwide coverage in the Washington Post, The Times, Yahoo News, the NZ Herald, Huffington Post and many more.
- Coverage in global sports sites including Sports.Ru, HITC Sport, 90 Min, FC Business among many others.
- Strong regional regional coverage relating to local players and teams.
- Directly attributable new customer signups and spend.
The concept was immediate to grasp, and irresistible to engage with due to the myriad of ways player and team data could be explored and the many and varied stories that the data told.
In-depth research and interactive visuals told this story – a celebration and illustration of the national origins of all 552 players, allowing visitors to explore the diverse heritage of players, their parents and grandparents.
Visually this was achieved via a dynamic, interactive map that used flowing country-to-country animation to show European footballers’ worldwide roots that could be explored in 12 languages, easily uncovering their own stories related to the different teams.
Set against the ongoing political and social debate about migration, the UK EU membership referendum, identity and culture also meant there was significant scope to become part of the wider international conversation in a way that positively reflected the brand.
Importantly, by capitalising on the narratives of these mainstream media topics, data-driven content could be created without presenting any barriers to those unfamiliar with sports betting.
