The Live Stadium

Because connecting live, in the moment, to passionate fans and big sporting moments  = victory.

There’s nothing like a global sporting event to unite fans and incite passion. And there’s nothing like harnessing fans’ passion as a brand. Whether it’s the Olympic Games, World Cup, Wimbledon, the Stanley Cup, or the NBA Finals, fans turn to Twitter to find out what’s happening, in real time. As a brand, running successful campaigns that engage fans at the moment of receptivity takes planning, creativity, and spontaneity.
