Sky Sports Kicks off Ashes Coverage with Tactical Digital Outdoor Campaign

Sky Sports launches a multi network digital outdoor campaign to promote its exclusive live coverage of the Ashes tournament. Supporting the print and static outdoor concept “Stay up or catch up”, the digital activity adds daily match results and tailored commentary based on that day’s game play.

Created by Brothers and Sisters and delivered through Grand Visual’s OpenLoop tactical platform, the multi format digital outdoor campaign targets commuters with tactical day part copy. The morning creative shows a member of Sky’s commentary team greeting commuters with the end of day match scores and reminding fans to “watch the morning catch up” on Sky Player,, or Sky Mobile TV.

On the evening execution a commentator appears providing opinion on the previous day’s play and the day to come – prompting viewers to “Stay up or catch up” with Sky.

The campaign is managed through Grand Visual’s OpenLoop platform which enables copy updates to be pushed across multiple outdoor networks almost instantaneously. The timely and responsive communication runs across seven different networks along popular commuter routes including roadside, forecourt, rail and underground.

Media was booked by IPM and runs for the duration of the test match.
