Schools Cup
Rugby campaign


Create a series of content to air at the start, during and at the final of the schools cup rugby campaign.


Schools cup rugby is about much more than the 15 players on the pitch.

The competition invokes a sense of pride, drawing huge crowds of pupils past and present, parents and rugby internationals. Profiling each school we captured the passion, dedication and drama of the Schools Cup competition.

We profiled the four schools in the semi final to hero not only their rugby prowess but their sense of pride and “family” in each school.

This campaign engaged with the schools cup rugby audience before the big game with school profiles, a promo with Jamie Heaslip, and a live broadcast of the cup draw.

For the final, “Walkups” were produced, to profile each of the players from both final teams.

To engage post-final, a highlights video was produced of the big day, highlighting the winning team and the people behind the winning team.
