Keep new and loyal fans engaged and enthused about everything Ajax has to offer.
Creating an evolving digital landscape that taps directly into the individual needs of fans through unique content access.
Two decades ago, Ajax was the best club in the world attracting a growing global fan-base. But staying at the top of your game in any sport is difficult to achieve. Today, Ajax is a second-tier club yet it still has a passionate fan following. The challenge is to continually engage fans and bring them as close to the brand as possible. And in turn, putting bums on seats in the stadium and increasing merchandising sales.
We spoke directly to the fans and discovered their passion went well beyond simply following the first team. It’s a weekly rhythm leading up to match days, soaking up as much media as much possible to bring them closer to the club. This defined the approach: give fans unique access to the build-up, the match, the afterglow: make them feel intimately connected to it all. Ultimately, it’s about creating the right balance of making them feel connected and converting them to meet business goals too.
Media generation lay at the heart of the concept and so from day one, Jungle Minds worked in close collaboration with the media department at Ajax. The outcome was the clear and coordinated production of unique Ajax content that would be fed into the new platform.
To make sure this content is continually fed online, we set up a fully centralised and in-house digital capability called Ajax Digital. Acting as a strategic partner for over 5 years, we continue to help Ajax connect with fans across all digital platforms, week in, week
Our continuous collaboration and improvement of the platform have achieved great results. Year on year, week by week the consumption of content steadily grows.
We only send out our newsletter semiregularly, but it's worth reading. Want us to send it to you too? That way you'll be the first to know when we organize an event about stuff that interests us.
