To mark the launch of the official Premier League 2023 sticker collection, London-based sports marketing agency Dark Horses has created a TV and digital campaign for Panini starring West Ham captain and England midfielder, Declan Rice.
Adopting Panini’s classic tagline #GotGotNeed, the campaign aims to emphasise the benefits of swapping amongst friends as a way of obtaining new stickers to complete their album.
The work will launch January 5th on TV, social and digital channels.
Alex Nixon, Business Director at Dark Horses, said, “It was great fun working on this campaign. Every sticker collector knows that feeling of nervous anticipation that accompanies a swapping session; and we wanted to bring this to life through the lens of a sticker. Declan is perfect for this, not only is he a sticker enthusiast, but his personality lends itself incredibly well to the playful nature of the idea.”
Chris Clover, Managing Director at Panini, added, “We’re thrilled to be working with Declan Rice once again, kicking off the new year in style. With the new sticker collection we want people to experience the adventure of swapping stickers to complete their collection, which our partners Dark Horses have reflected in the creative work. We’re proud to continue to work with the agency, who reflect our values and goals as a brand.”
