FA

In August 2021, Xbox announced a partnership with the English Football Association (FA) as part of a long-term sports strategy, lighting Wembley up in green to celebrate their sponsorship of the England Senior Men’s and Women’s teams. Since then, we’ve created some distinct football campaigns to maximise Xbox’s partnership with the FA.

In the run up to the Men’s World Cup tournament, we worked with the FA to create a digital campaign that saw England players Declan Rice, Phil Foden and Tammy Abraham compete in a series of real-life challenges inspired by some of Xbox’s most iconic in-game worlds to win a limited-edition signed Xbox Series X consoles for fans.

We further supported Xbox in activating their access rights across the international football season, enabling us to arrange LED exposure, offer ticket giveaways and grant behind the scenes access to fans. This included inviting beneficiaries from videogames industry charity Special Effect to a special open training session at St George’s Park.

Fronted by H&M’s Global Sustainability Ambassador and Game of Thrones actor and filmmaker Maisie Williams, our partnership featured the addition of the brand-new Looop Island in the Animal Crossing game for players to explore, where they could recycle their in-game outfits using the Looop machine and choose new ones as they played.
