In 2016 Q1 we delivered:
PrettyGreen’s PR, Events and The Content Studio had just 2-hours with Andy Murray ahead of the 2015 Wimbledon Championship to bring to life how the brand’s sponsorship was making the British No.1 a better athlete. Playing on Murray’s rise up player rankings in 2015, UA physically took Murray to the ‘next level’ by negotiating photo shoot access to a closed Canary Wharf skyscraper roof and building a platform 770ft above London’s skyline. UA’s images and content became iconic ahead of Wimbledon – generating more headlines and media coverage (every national newspaper) than any other UA sponsorship deal before (and winning Sponsorship Awards best use of PR).
Ahead of the 2016 Wimbledon Championship we were challenged to create an iconic PR stunt in London with Andy Murray to generate mass PR coverage in sports, news and lifestyle media and social buzz. We created a unique underground training facility in an unused tunnel under the streets of London, using the site to create a series of images demonstrating Andy’s innovative training process.
We had a total of 2 hours (including travel time) to shoot photography and video, as well as carry out media interviews …And it was during the same week as the EU referendum and EURO 2016.
