There's No Wrong Way to Play in Star-Studded Spot for EA Sports FIFA 20

Creative 662 Add to collection

The 'Wrong Breaks New Ground' campaign was created by adam&eveDDB and helmed by Top Boy director Yann Demange

There's No Wrong Way to Play in Star-Studded Spot for EA Sports FIFA 20

Marking the worldwide launch of FIFA 20, adam&eveDDB has created a new global campaign focussing on innovators that play ‘wrong’ in the stadium, in the street and in the game.

The 90-second film highlights that, from the stadium to the street, football has always been pushed forward by people who do things differently. It celebrates those that play ‘wrong’ and defy conventional wisdom to play in their own uncompromising style.

The ad features superstars from the stadium Eden Hazard, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho, Vinícius Jr and Megan Rapinoe, alongside street football innovator Lisa Freestyle and boxer Anthony Joshua.

The film is part of a global campaign calling on players to “Break New Ground”. With the addition of the street football in the “Volta Football” game mode, players can play their own way and create like never before. The 360 campaign also features “The Groundbreakers” - a series of stories showcasing innovators from the stadium to the street

Mat Goff, Joint CEO of adam&eveDDB, said: “There has always been a ‘right’ way to do things in football. But the global FIFA community are constantly making and breaking their own rules to show that wrong is the new right and changing the game for the better.’
