Nissan is the official global automotive sponsor of the UEFA Super Cup and UEFA Champions League, with a deal covering the periods from 2014/2015 to 2017/2018. With the Nissan Controller, created by TBWA\Helsinki, fans will be once again at the heart of Nissan’s partnership. The Controller looks to engineer unexpected moments of fan excitement to enhance their experience of Europe’s most prestigious football competition. It plays on the excitement fuelling the automotive and football worlds to create an innovative experience.

The project is a perfect example of Nissan’s fresh ideas and desire to challenge conventions.
