Volvo Tweetball

22th of June 2016. Belgium Vs Sweden during the Euro 2016 soccer championships. A big deal for everyone in Belgium. But who do you support as a Swedish car brand with a factory in Belgium? What do you do when you love both countries? You celebrate every goal! Volvo Tweetball was born.

Volvo Tweetball; A real-time virtual soccer game on Twitter.

How did it work? The moment the real game started, we dropped a virtual ball on Volvo’s Twitter account. The person who retweeted this tweet at the exact same time a goal was scored in the real football match, stood a chance to win a fantastic trip to Sweden.
