The Six Nations Championship is not just a rugby extravaganza; it’s a global spectacle that beckons sports enthusiasts from every corner of the world. With the 2024 Six Nations underway, it’s prime time for brands to jump on board and grab some spotlight. As a platform that connects brands with sports influencers, we’ve got a winning strategy to help your brand get noticed.
Why the Six Nations Rocks
The Six Nations Championship is all about skill, determination, and national pride. Last year alone 130m people tuned in to the championships which vastly benefited events title sponsor Guinness. You to can join the bandwagon and make the most of this big event for your brand, you need to dive into the excitement and passion of rugby. We believe in using sports influencers to connect with fans personally, creating experiences they’ll remember long after the final whistle blows.
Brian O’Driscoll, former Ireland and British & Irish Lions captain, and now ITV pundit, said this at the opener last Friday: “The Six Nations never fails to deliver. It’s the best annual competition in the world, there’s no doubt.”
Social media is where sports fans hang out these days. Agencies and Social Media Teams craft custom content for platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok to keep your brand front and center during the tournament. Engaging photos, interesting stories, and live updates will keep your brand on everyone’s radar.
Teaming Up with Rugby Stars
Athletes are the heroes of sports, and we’ve got a lineup of rugby influencers who not only rock on the field but also have a real connection with their fans. By teaming up with these influencers, your brand can reach an authentic audience, using their influence to tell stories that fit perfectly with the Six Nations vibe.
Authenticity is key in influencer marketing. We suggest partnering with Six Nations players to give your brand some street cred. Whether it’s behind-the-scenes content or co-branded gear, these collaborations make athletes relatable influencers who embody the spirit of the tournament.
Beyond the Screen
To really make a splash, brands should think beyond digital marketing. Hosting viewing parties, teaming up with fan clubs, or sponsoring local rugby events lets you connect directly with your target audience. These face-to-face interactions are a great way to show off your brand and build loyalty.
For example, Specsavers teamed up with rugby star Mike Haley for their 2023 Rugby World Cup campaign. Mike engaged with fans in Paris, creating buzz for the brand.

Contests, giveaways, and interactive challenges will be designed to actively involve fans in the Six Nations narrative.
