Euro 2016 has drawn to a close and the elaborate marketing campaigns of the major sponsors will soon fade into obscurity. This year’s tournament has been the largest of its kind with the addition of eight new teams, twenty new games and roughly 230 million more viewers. With this additional attention, the competition has presented an excellent opportunity for brands to reach a new captive audience. Some manage to do this far better than others. This year, it wasn’t just the major sponsors that surged in popularity, many unofficial companies thrived too.
