World Cup 'Show Your Colours' User Generated Content Competition Drives 519% Engagement Uplift

Our 2014 World Cup ‘Show your Colours’ World Cup Campaign with Evolve has been one of the most successful campaigns we have run on Social. Not only did they contribute to us achieving record sales of merchandise across our retails stores, but their clever use of user generated content helped us drive engagement and community to a level we have not replicated since on our social channels.
