England Rugby / Welsh Rugby Union / NatWest (2015)

In 2015, Rhidian led a guerrilla campaign during the Rugby World Cup.  NatWest were a major sponsor of 6 Nations rugby, but were locked out of the Rugby World Cup.  NatWest needed a way to maintain and build awareness of their rugby sponsorships at a time when other brands were getting the limelight.

Working with M&C Saatchi, Rhidian devised a guerrilla campaign.  The objective was to create highly sharable digital content that would appeal to more than just die hard rugby fans and spread NatWest’s support for English and Welsh rugby.

With next to no paid media support, the content achieved over 450k organic views, broke a Guinness World Record and helped raise awareness of NatWest’s rugby sponsorship by 43%.

The activity helped drive spontaneous awareness of the sponsorship to 29%, making RBS the brand most associated with rugby in the UK.  Importantly, those aware of the RBS sponsorship had higher levels of brand trust (+3%), consideration (+5%) and NPS (+10%).
