The Facebook Football Awards is the first-ever commissioned piece of content from Facebook. The inaugrual award show was produced by Boomerang in association with BT Sport Digital. Facebook needed a way to speak to their global football fans in a credible way so together we created an informal, sport-entertainment format that blended an award show with a 2014/15 Barclays Premier League review.
Jake Humphrey presented the show with three special guests, footballers Ian Wright, Michael Owen and Robbie Savage which added an exciting credibility and energy dynamic to the show, with Rachel Stringer acting as roving reporter interviewing stars from the world of sport and entertainment.
The in-studio lively debate blended with high quality action VT’s, smart short form interviews with winners including Harry Kane, Arsene Wenger and Alexis Sanchez we produced a high impact sport-entertainment show that met the expectations of Facebook and BT Sport with strong global numbers in the millions.
The one hour live show was simulcast on Facebook and BT Sport on May 26th 2015 and was Series Produced by Amanda Kean, Directed by Chris Howe and Executive Produced by Dylan Wyn Davies.
