EURO 2016 - Local Activation

Project Summary

Carlsberg, as an official sponsor of UEFA EURO 2016, wanted to offer the all football fans, probably the best football experience!

 For the purpose we created a website meant to serve as the ultimate hub for the Euro 2016 experience! Through this site users could participate in our 2 main competitions:

- MAN OF THE MATCH: An interactive online competition where users picked a friend from their Facebook profile and gathered votes to win a trip to EURO 2016 and the opportunity to represent Cyprus by presenting the Man Of The Match award to the best player of the game!

- CODE COLLECTOR: A code entry competition, where participant had to enter a code found on every Carlsberg bottle and can, every code entered counted as a participation to the draw. Several draws took place on a weekly basis, and the prizes included Hospitality Packages to France for UEFA EURO 2016, Samsung Galaxy S7 phones and Samsung LED TVs.

The campaign was supported by on-trade promotion at bars and pubs around Cyprus where fans could watch the game, win prizes and of course... enjoy an ice cold Carlsberg.
