SUMMARY

The Casebook collects 20 case studies of 2021’s most important sports sponsorship activations from some of the world’s most innovative brands.

Each case study profiles an activation produced by a brand and a rights-holder, and explains its objectives, the practical elements of the activation and the outcomes.

You’ll find case studies from sectors including beer, crypto, telecoms and personal care, featuring partners from the NFL and NHL to the IOC and Tennis Australia, and brands from Burger King to Nike.
