This New Football Spot Brings Italy Together ‘For The Love of Sport’

Egg Films’ Brent Harris directed For The Love Of Sport, Sky Sports’ epic new football ad, produced by Jon Ronbeck with Mapi Brambilla and Paolo Zaninello from AKITA Film in Italy.

When Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi goes down injured, the ad captures the way an entire country joins together to get him back in play. Look out for cameos from the likes of Juventus’ Daniele Rugani, AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli, Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa and Italian legend Alessandro del Piero. 

Grey United’s Christopher Jones and Serena Bruno conceptualised the ad, which was filmed just outside Milan in gorgeous black and white by DOP Justin Brown. Martin Leroy edited For The Love Of Sport at Whitehouse Post, with EDI extending the stadium in post and multiplying hundreds of extras into tens of thousands.
