Coca Cola World Cup

Believing is Magic is the title of Coca-Cola’s FIFA World Cup campaign, which aims to encourage people to believe that anything is possible. The activity will be supported by an on-pack promotion to win a branded football.

The campaign focuses on the concept of football fans having to ‘Share a Promise’ – committing to an act should their team win. The creative will feature real fans sharing their promises, from getting a tattoo to dying their hair.

The new campaign will launch on 7th October across TV, radio, OOH, social and digital and will run into November, with the new TV advert first airing during the Women’s England v USA match this Friday. 

From 17 October, shoppers buying on-the-go (500ml rPET bottles) and sharing promotional packs (multi-pack cans) of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Coca-Cola Original Taste will have the chance to win one of 10,000 limited-edition Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup 2022 branded footballs.

Also, for the fifth time, Coca-Cola and FIFA have come together to bring the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola to the world. For the first time ever, the Original FIFA World Cup Trophy will kick-off its UK leg of the tour in Cardiff celebrating Wales’ first appearance at the tournament in 64 years, before landing at London Stansted and making its way to Wembley Stadium. Football fans will have the chance to view the most iconic symbol in football and experience the real magic of the world’s largest, most anticipated sporting event for themselves.
