It starts with a booking

Agency: adam&eveDDB


As part of a multi-year partnership with UEFA, adam&eveDDB and have launched an exciting new 360 campaign to promote sponsorship of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.

The integrated campaign, ‘It Starts With A Booking’ aims to inspire the next generation of female football players.

A hero 120” TVC is centred around a journey of discovery, in which a young child starts to discover and unlock their football skills. The child finds out that their Mom is taking them to the final of the Women Euros, where they meets their role model, England football player Millie Bright, making her dreams come true, thanks to one small – yet significant – booking moment.

The story, which at first might seem like the journey of a young boy, plays on viewers’ bias, and attempts to shift perceptions, while creating a fun and playful spot that showcases a love for football and a pivotal moment, as we learn that the young footballer is actually a girl.

adam&eveDDB worked with to ensure gender diversity on and off camera. The ad was directed by Natalie Rae and features female football stars, including German player, Linda Dallman in their German adaptation.

This professional campaign titled 'It starts with a booking' was published on July 15, 2022. It was created for the brand:, by ad agency: adam&eveDDB. This 360° medium campaign is related to the Public Interest, Sports, and Travel and Tourism industries and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 1 year ago.
