BRIEF

National Football Exhibition, with a variety of family-friendly elements for football and non-football fans.

WHERE

9 different locations, countrywide throughout 2018, 2019 and 2020.

WHY

To promote and celebrate that Dublin has been chosen as one of the host cities for UEFA EURO 2020 and to also form part of the celebration of 60 years of the UEFA European Championships while also highlighting the importance of football to Ireland as we approach the 100th anniversary of the FAI.

WHO

Both football and non-football fans alike and visitors of all ages.

WHAT WE DID

 

Grooveyard as the appointed agency designed and delivered an exciting and interactive exhibition. One of the key objectives of the exhibition was ensuring that it was flexible to construct to accommodate touring to different locations throughout a 20 month period.

Grooveyard worked closely with the FAI to ensure visitors were taken on a journey. A story was created through an audio tour, printed content, memorabilia and interactive elements, where visitors were immersed in footballing history and tradition and left the exhibition with a knowledge of their local clubs, the impact football has in bringing a community together and the recent and past successes of our National and International teams while also generating excitement and an interest in the four matches being hosted in Dublin in 2020.

Grooveyard managed the entire look and feel of the exhibition, coordinated with the FAI and stakeholders on historic memorabilia and managed the creative concept and delivery of all interactive engagement pieces.
