Led by the one minute emotionally fuelled piece that followed the journey of young Proteas who recollect their emotions when first putting on their country’s colours at different stages of their early lives – culminating in putting on the Proteas kit now.
A personalised influencer drop saw 15 celebrity Protea fans get new kits delivered to them with hand written notes thanking them for feeling the fire from the players themselves.
Social media focused on a two-week teaser phase (glimpsing kit close ups and promo screen grabs) followed by the kit launch. Onwards saw targeted paid spend behind commercial, player posts and retail call-to-action pieces across Facebook and Twitter.
Three offshoot extended campaign content pieces from the players were rolled out exclusively on digital platforms where the featured players discussed the feelings around wearing the shirt as a player and fan.
Feel the Fire themed Performance Workshop was activated at the new Mall of Africa store. The team spoke through performance aspects of the game and what it means to put on the shirt.
