Shirt Launch

Result

The season kit launch was a big success, even making the news headlines. Where in the past Racing Genk unveiled the new shirt with a photo shoot or a campaign video, this time the club goes a step further: thanks to Augmented Reality, it brings the new equipment to the home of the supporters. With everyone, at the same time and in 360 degrees. This gives the Belgian club a European first. With the help of the app 'Reload KRC Genk', the new Genk acquisition Theo Bongonda appears on your smartphone. In true-to-life proportion, you can admire the new gear wherever you are. Fans can use the built-in Snap-and-Share functionality to take a selfie with Theo and share it online with their friends and fellow KRC Genk fans.

Approach

- During a volumetric photoshoot, Theo Bongonda was captured in 3D wearing the new Home, Away and Alternative kit.

- The reveal of the new player outfits is a highly anticipated moment for the fans, so KRC Genk set up a campaign that counts down to the actual reveal.

- In the app, fans saw a timer counting down to the day of the first match in the new equipment.

- Only then could they view a 3D model Theo with the proper textures applied, so design of the shirt and sponsors would be kept a secret until that moment.
