In New ESPN College Football Campaign, Superstitions, Traditions, ‘Everything Matters’

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

August 29, 2018: ESPN has launched “Everything Matters,” the first spot in a fan-first campaign to support the 2018 college football season.

The campaign is part of ESPN's ongoing umbrella “Who’s In?” effort, which launched in 2014 to coincide with the inaugural year of the College Football Playoff.

The campaign will run across ESPN and ABC platforms during the college football season, with new spots in rotation as the season progresses.

“As the last four years have shown us, the path to the College Football Playoff is unpredictable, and superstition and tradition often play a role in how fans experience the season,” Wanda Young, ESPN’s svp-marketing and consumer engagement, said in a statement.

“We wanted to give a wink and a nod to what every fan knows in their heart: college football is more than what happens on the gridiron. It’s also the little things off the field that allow fans to have a real impact on their team’s journey.”

The schools represented in the initial spot include Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCF, USC and Washington.

Among the superstitions and traditions: Face painting in your team’s colors, where you sit to watch a game, the height of the grass on your front lawn and what you eat for breakfast, “because everything matters.”

“No pressure,” says Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher.

In addition to the kickoff anthem spot, ESPN will launch an SEC-centric version that includes all 14 SEC schools and will be featured on the SEC Network.

McKinney is the lead agency.

ESPN’s schedule for the first three weeks of the college football season launches a season-long campaign that will culminate with six conference championship games and leads into a post-season featuring 35 Bowl Games.

That includes the New Year’s Six and the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T.

ESPN will also air every snap of the NCAA Division I Football Championship and crown the Division II and III National Champions.
