Champions' Hijack

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Media / Use of Online Advertising / 2017

GO Sport is the leader in sports goods retail, in a stagnated market. With the 2015/16 football season nearing its end, football gear inventory was piling up. We needed to deplete it to cut our losses before the new season gear arrives. Building on Passionistas’ cult-like following for their stars, we had an idea to be implemented just at the right time.

Using only 2 inserts in the UAE’s top sports magazine, we increased sales by 25%.
