The objective was to weave the brand into the conversations around the World Cup in a way that celebrated the participating teams and athletes. Every four years, the keys to football heaven are dangled in front of the international elite. One goal, one pass, one game saving tackle can be the difference between fame and forgotten. What happens on the pitch in that split second has a ripple effect that goes beyond the match and the tournament. 'Write the Future' was a messaging platform that allowed Nike to show how football creates this ripple effect. It allowed us to give a glimpse into the future to see what the players were really playing for, in their own lives and the lives of those that follow them. "By owning the notion of 'Write The Future' and showcasing our athletes writing their futures, we engaged our audience in a number of different ways and channels. We ignited the conversation with a three-minute film, in a unique launch with concurrent takeovers on Facebook, YouTube, Xbox and a live TV broadcast during the Champions League Final. The aim was to disrupt the global blogosphere and mobilize Nike's social community for further activity during the tournament. This was amplified through print, retail, OOH and two interactive elements during the event. The 'Write The Headline' Facebook App, which allowed fans to see their own future play out like the film. And the 'Lifecentre,' an interactive digital billboard in South Africa where fans from around the world could write headlines for their favorite players during the tournament."
