Now, when the Euro 2012 matches are capturing attention of all football fans, the frenzy of their emotions are driven to the highest pitch.

The new digital platform, developed by Work Club, is engaging millions of football fans in its cross-country research, aimed to provide a deeper insight into how fans feel about the matches, what they think of upcoming games and if they are confident about their teams. For instance, it discovered that “both Czech and Greek fans feel less confident since their opening match.” Among other content, the platform also features infographics showing words Czech and Greek fans associate with their teams, as well as graphs showing the level of confidence the teams in each of the groups have.
“FanLabs means that we can now literally get inside the head of football fans giving Sharp a never-before seen insight into one of its biggest target consumers,” shared Paddy Griffith, a member of the Work Club creative team. The promotion includes the digital activation and a TV spot, which is to be aired in 16 markets—Sharp aims to show this advert in the FanZones in Euro 2012 hosting countries, Poland and Ukraine, to around 350 million fans total.
