Euros 2024 marks the launch of Sky Bet’s latest campaign with Grey London: “Tournament Turmoil.” This campaign, building on Sky Bet’s recently launched new positioning “For the Fans,” takes a deeper look, beyond club football, at how fans really feel during an international tournament like the Euros. At a time when most brands follow the cliche of international tournaments; pure elation, togetherness and fake celebrations, Sky Bet recognizes the inner conflicts fans feel when domestic allegiances vanish. In this unique month, supporting your nation creates all sorts of turmoil - your loyalties are a mess, and you face constant dilemmas. Spurs supporters have to cheer on Arsenal players. Man United supporters fear players they usually declare their undying love for. Grey London aimed to acknowledge that complexity and offer something to fans to help them navigate it. 

The first spot in the new campaign, “Trim” directed by Jeff Low via Biscuit Filmworks, has been rolled out, highlighting a fan’s inner dialogue and the conflicting emotions experienced during this time of year. Despite the dilemmas, lifelong rivalries, and newfound dislike for players they usually admire, supporting their nation in the Euros feels profoundly right and worth all the turmoil.  

David Wigglesworth, Grey London executive creative director, said, “While many brands will ride the wave of international tournaments clichés, with our partners Sky Bet we wanted to celebrate the genuine inner conflict fans face when domestic loyalties fade away. To be ‘For the Fans’ it felt important to embrace the light hearted humor of it all. ‘Trim’ captures one such fan’s inner turmoil and emotional conflict during the Euros, making the inevitable support for their nation resonate deeply despite the dilemmas.”
