For the second time in the history of the games, the Japanese capital will be hosting the Olympic Games this summer. The Tokyo Games will officially start with the opening ceremony on July 23rd and run until August 8th, 2021. Due to the global pandemic and the sanitary situation in Japan, there will be no overseas spectators in Tokyo, with only the home crowd cheering on the more than 11,000 athletes competing from over 200 nations. But millions of viewers will be tuning in from their homes around the world to cheer on their teams!

The Olympic Games are one of the most popular and watched sporting events in the world. Like the Tour de France or European Championship Football 2020, brands and media will be looking to capitalise on the conversation, even more so this year with everyone watching from a distance. This article contains 16 live campaign examples created by our wonderful Studio team to inspire you and help you to connect with the sports fans in your community on all your digital channels.
