Problem

Cheerleading is a serious & growing sport!

But people don't know what Cheer is, they only know what Cheer was.

Insight

The sparkles and bows hide how multi-disciplined and extreme cheerleaders are.

Strategy

Cheer's evolution demonstrates a powerful "from nothing, to something" story that resonates with sports fans.

Solution

Cheer has Changed. 

#notonthesidelines

 

Cheer is not on the sidelines of other sports, it's the main event.

 

By pairing with Nike and taking a real approach to what cheer is, where it has come from and where it's going - we want to change the perception of cheerleading and excite the public for it to be in the Olympics 2028.
