About the Work

In April 2022, one news devastated Italians: Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup. The most passionate and insane football fans in the world had no one to cheer for. But someone else qualified: Canada, the nation with the fewest football fans in the world. That’s why Fonzies, Mondelēz’s number one cheese-flavored snack in Italy and sponsor of the Italian national football team, decided to turn teamless Italian supporters into passionate Canadian supporters. In October 2022, Italian famous sports influencers launched a global call to action on social media to join the “FonziesForCanada” fan club for Italians to support the Canadian national football club. But being a dedicated fan takes practice. That’s why members found a series of tutorials on Fonzies IG Profile to learn the best Canadian chants, the national anthem and the players’ name pronunciations. Once ready, they could cheer hard for Canada on social media thanks to “supporting cards” posted on the Fonzies IG profile and thanks to the official “Forza Canada” GIFs sent via IG direct message. Within a few days, with this social kit, Italians all over the world became ambassadors for the project, building a global community of millions committed to supporting Canada on social media (and beyond) during the matches. Even the Canadian Ambassador and the #1 Italian sportscaster joined us. Forza Canada totaled 2.6 million Social Media Interaction, 40 million Global Social Reach and the resulting hype on social media made Belgium-Canada the most-watched football match in Canadian history (54% Italian viewers). That’s how Fonzies became the most beloved snack brand in Italy during the World Cup (96% positive brand sentiment) despite Italy not having even qualified.
