Unifying 8 Sports acquisitions into one new brand.
In the business of branded athletic apparel and equipment, Game One (formerly ASB SPORTS) determined that eight uniquely strong regional sports brands should be united into one national powerhouse capable of disrupting the market, driving profit and generally reigning supreme.
With passionately divided customers and employees, none of the existing brands could communicate national unity, promote premium value, establish differentiation, generate meaningful inspiration, or attract “right-fit” acquisition opportunities to the organization.
To achieve the success they desired, a new brand with team sports focused guiding principles, messaging, visuals, and name was needed. We worked with leadership to create a brand that resonated with employees and told the story of what customers really want from them: Unity.
The newly branded Game One now has a unified story, a unique position in the marketplace, and a new brand to help them grow. Post launch, the brand has almost doubled its amount of acquisitions and created waves in the branded athletic apparel and equipment industry.
