Continuing the brand position ‘We’re a FoxSporting Nation’ under the new theme ‘Everyone’s team deserves to be seen’, the campaign (created with the help of TBWA Sydney) celebrates Fox Footy’s inclusive, unbiased coverage (the fact that they cover every club, big or small, every week).

The TVC is led by former Brisbane Lions captain Fox Footy expert Jonathan Brown, along with cameos from Paul Roos, Brad Johnson, Eddie McGuire and David King, as well as current AFLW player Brianna Davey and AFL player Jordan Lewis.

Craig Brooks, executive creative director at TBWA, said one of the rituals of being an everyday footy fan in Australia is a blind loyalty and love towards your team.

“This is no different for the dedicated team at Fox Footy,” he said.

Rob Farmer, director of brand marketing for content and products at Foxtel, said: “We wanted to open up the inner workings of Fox Footy, the best in the business when it comes to AFL coverage, and a cornerstone of Foxtel’s unrivalled sport offering.

“They show every team live every round, no matter how big or small, which caters for every fan’s bias.”
