If you want to turn it into red, just go to Al Ahly SC, the giant of Africa and its club of the century backing Etisalat by e& in its mission to deliver the new brand of Etisalat by e&, the telecom giant of MENA to the majority of the huge Egyptian market.

Last July, Etisalat Misr launched its new brand (rebranding) OOH campaign across Egypt, with a clear message about being a part of a bigger world of technology and not just telecom services. A few OOH campaigns popped up later until the last campaign of Hekaya with Ahmed Helmy, and now Etisalat by e& looking to ensure the new brand image had turned from green to red by partnering with the biggest sports club brand in MEA, Al Ahly SC. With a breaking record of 10 campaigns, Al Ahly SC comes on top of the sports clubs brands on our magazine platform with a big gap to any other sports club; this is why Etisalat by e& signing again with Al Ahly SC, after the first partnership in 2011 to continue and extend the legacy.

The ad message came out clear and straightforward in a minimal style design; two-thirds of the visual’s right side is the t-shirt of Al Ahly -branded by Adidas- carrying the new Etisalat by e& logo on the chest, and dark red background, all together on the right side of the ad message, while the left side headed by Al-Ahly logo relies on Etisalat by e& logo and footed with “The main & technologic sponsor of Al Ahly SC” on a white background.

The campaign spread the message across Egypt, focusing on Cairo, the capital, and the major cities; the brand covers a wide range of districts and locations with big OOH formats on billboards, uni-poles, double-deckers, and gates.

The campaign was monitored in the second week of November; it was a controversial one in the first days; however, news spread on Twitter and other social media that some of the opponent teams' fans in some cities removed the ads from their districts!
