LONDON Olympics

Embratur, The Brazilian Tourism Board, took advantage of the Olympic atmosphere in London to create awareness of their European campaign, “The world meets in Brazil, Come celebrate life”. The Metro Network offered an ideal mix of in-paper and street marketing activity to reach a festive audience.


Firstly, ads were published in Metro’s Olympic Preview Guide, Metro UK and the Evening Standard. Then 10,000 branded mini footballs were distributed together with the Evening Standard in key underground stations. The combination ensured Embratur created a buzz amongst commuters and successfully engaged with their target audience.


The campaign was extended with a second wave in Metro’s Premium Network, Running half pages in Germany (Die Welt), France (Le Figaro) and Italy (La Repubblica).

With exactly one year to go until the start of the 2014 FIFAWorld Cup, Brazil launched their campaign in New York “The World Meets in Brazil. Come Celebrate Life in 2014 FIFA World Cup” 


To mark the occasion and promote the Brazilian Summer Stage taking place in Central Park, postcards were distributed by branded promoters in key areas of the city. On 20th August, the day tickets to the FIFA World Cup 2014 were released, Metro distributed 5,000 mini footballs in Times Square with a team of branded promoters and a professional footballer.


Together with in-paper activity, the campaign engaged with the audience and helped to build excitement and anticipation for two of the biggest sporting events in the world which are to be hosted by Brazil, the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.
