Embed Video
Sports Direct, the UK’s biggest sports and fitness retailer, has unveiled its first ever Christmas campaign, showcasing the brand’s fresh new positioning and rebrand for 2021 and beyond. Launching from 18th November 2020, ‘Sport Starts Here’ is a high-energy, musical celebration of sport and fitness, where we see a range of sports being choreographed in a magical mashup. The film follows a female protagonist being asked the dreaded question by her mum ‘what do you want for Christmas?’, before exploring the realms of sport in every sense of the word - a big, powerful and exhilarating Christmas advert that leaves you energised and ready to move. Liverpool FC Captain Jordan Henderson makes a cameo, as he’s seen being tackled by a female football player, alongside over 100 everyday athletes featured at the heart of the advert.
