adidas football has always been about the team.

Every team needs diversity in unity – eleven individuals playing as one.

During this key FIFA World Cup year and more than ever before, the team is what adidas will stand for. Every team needs a kit, the outfit that stands for their team.

That’s why our fans recognise us, remembering who is inspiring them.

- 16–24 males, active football lovers.
- 16+, general mass.

How to say it:
-Exciting, Engaging, Celebrating.

- Appropriate strategic locations (e.g. retail, online, ATL, etc.).

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The adidas 2010 World Cup theme was: Every team needs a shirt with a story – based on the fact that every nation has its own myths and legends that drive jersey design. Our task was to sell jerseys by creating deeper interest in each nation’s jersey.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We brought the story to life in-store. Inspired by Germany’s mythical Eagle, we created an 8-foot tall sculpture out of the jersey, that not only resembled the legendary creature, but told the story of its myth.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The sculpture not only delighted fans of the German team but attracted passers-by. In the end, the team gained a new following and so did the store. Sales of the jersey soared – with a 50% increase.
