We are absolutely delighted to announce that WePlay has been recognised as the leading agency serving football, by winning the prestigious ‘Agency of the Year’ category for the second year in a row at the Football Business Awards 2018.
On Thursday 22nd November 2018 in the heart of the city at The HAC, WePlay were crowned ‘Agency of the Year’ for a second successive year.
Competing in a highly competitive category against some of the best marketing and creative agencies in the business, WePlay were selected by judges that included the CEO’s of Brighton & Hove Albion FC, Aberdeen, Stoke City, the Scottish Premier League and Managing Director of Wolverhampton Wanders.
It’s an outstanding achievement to become the first agency to retain this prestigious award for the second year in a row. It has been an incredible year for WePlay, where we have doubled in size and delivered marketing success for a range of international brands in football, including La Liga, Ligue de Football Professionnel, Yokohama Tyres and Red Bull.
Luca Massaro, Chief Executive of WePlay, comments: “I am incredibly proud that WePlay has retained the prestigious Agency of the Year award. This award acknowledges WePlay’s consistent investment in delivering unrivalled results for our ever-expanding list of clients around the world.
We are seeing the sports sector, particularly in the EMEA region begin to thrive and fully embrace the possibilities and opportunities of a digital marketing strategy and adopt the best practices of blending smart strategy, with social-first creative and high-performance targeting. We’re proud to be at the heart of this evolution and our performance-driven approach is what is allowing us to deliver such levels of success.”
The judges comments included in the voting: We Play have achieved a lot for a small company and have attracted an amazing line up of new client partners. After winning Agency of the Year at the Football Business Awards in 2017, WePlay have gone from strength to strength, growing revenues by 59% and their staff base by 63%. The work they have undertaken combined with exceptional growth in revenue make WePlay a winner again tonight.
