The Great Football Experiment, our innovative campaign for Nivea for Men, picked up its first prize of the season this week winning gold at The Hollis Sponsorship Awards for best digital activation campaign.
With it shortlisted for both the Marketing Week Engage and Sports Industry Awards next month, we're thinking we may have a hattrick on the cards.
The campaign itself dramatized the brand's proposition 'Preparation is everything,' by showing how a bunch of amateur footballers at a failing football team could progress from no hopes to runners up in their league, and even beat a team of England Legends when given access to the likes of El Tay, Ray Wilkins, and Ray Clemence.
The whole thing played out through social channels and drove massive engagement with the brand. Result.
Great assists from Carat, Octagon, Online Fire, and Big Balls who all gave it 110%.
