Ladbrokes announces its new campaign to mark the return of British football

The latest campaign by Ladbrokes ad agency Neverland hopes to create great anticipation for the return of British football.

The campaign will be divided into two parts; throughout the week, she will focus on television activity, with an ad that shows several drummers raising their drumsticks before starting to play. Then over the weekend, during the second phase, the announcement will continue with drummers playing, to complement the return of football action.

Ladbrokes says the ad will target each fan through specific messages, with cross-channel activations including online video, social, radio and print.

The campaign launches this week, but will be “updated” in October to show more clubs and fans. It was filmed by Joe Conner of Rogue Films, the same team that created the Euro 2020 drummers campaign.

The announcement will reflect the performances of 92 English Football League and Premier League clubs as the football season progresses.

Stewart Townsend, head of marketing for the Ladbrokes brand, said: “Our latest campaign brilliantly captures the emotion of football and helps establish Ladbrokes as an entertainment brand. The drummers are back and we’re using them to express tension and excitement. expectation that fans feel in the days and hours before the start of a weekend.”

Jon Forsyth, co-founder of Neverland, added: “After getting the nation’s attention with our latest campaign, the drummers are back to put us back in the new season.”
