Youth Engagement

A lifetime of affinity between fan and team is shaped during formative years. Digital helps to galvanise strong emotional connections with today's youth, but the landscape is ever-changing. Exploding mediums such as YouTube, multiplayer network gaming and ‘pick up and play’ mobile games all vie for attention.

We’ve developed a unique tactical approach to the planning and delivery of highly effective, youth centred digital engagement. Our research, empathy, experience and understanding of key emotional drivers, inform sound tactics for any youth-focused digital property.

Sport promotes healthy lifestyles, great social values and honest entertainment. Its interaction with youth must be authentic and delivered on their terms. Once a venerable connection exists, the potential is long lasting and truly limitless.

Eastwood has been at the forefront of digital youth engagement since 2010. Since then, we’ve helped connect over half a million young fans to sport in innovative and meaningful ways.
