SUMMARY

The Casebook collects 15 case studies of 2020/21’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.

It includes case studies on activations from the finance, automotive, beer, video game sectors, and more. And features partners with very different platforms and possibilities, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, USTA, and more.

This year’s collection is unsurprisingly dominated by case studies of brands and creative agencies that found ways to activate successfully in the face of the challenges posed by Covid-19.
