adidas film celebrates differences at UEFA Euro 2020

Campaign inspires people to build a more inclusive world with football.


Mumbai: Apparel brand adidas unveiled the first in a series of short films, as part of its new UEFA EURO 2020 campaign to inspire fans, players, and communities to build a more positive and inclusive world by celebrating the differences that make people unique.  

The rallying cry began on Friday with the pre-tournament short film calling all athletes and fans together to celebrate, and push for, inclusivity through football. The film focuses on the unique power football has in bringing people together and creating opportunities to drive positive change, beyond the pitch and within society.   

Through the film, players from the world over are seen playing in an exhibition of the Niforia, the official match ball of UEFA EURO 2020TM. Launched to complement the original tournament timings, the ball offers homage to the coming together of teams of footballers from different countries and varied origins, bearing the coordinates of several stadiums that will host the momentous and incredible European sporting history.   

adidas football head of global brand marketing Matt Davidson said: "Since we started on the journey towards UEFA Euro 2020TM, a lot has changed, but one thing that hasn’t has been the excitement for a major tournament. Perhaps the excitement for this tournament is even greater than normal, due to what the world has been through. UEFA Euro 2020TM will show us once again what is possible when we come together & celebrate the power of sport – the thrills, the emotion, the respect. The Uniforia ball remains a symbol for how we can unite through sport & culture, and also celebrate what makes us different.”  

The campaign is part of adidas’ wider refreshed brand attitude to inspire optimism with action against the key focuses of sustainability, inclusivity, and credibility. It encourages us all to see the world, not as it is today, but how it could be.
