This campaign demonstrated that – in order to deliver an awareness campaign at a major event, where much of the attention is on the football matches – it is important to engage with the media. This was done by FARE and UEFA by encouraging high-profile current and former players, and other popular VIPs in football and politics, to demonstrate their support of the campaign’s message at press conferences and other media events.
