TORONTO (August 28, 2017) Celebrating the importance of sport as a unifying force in Canada, Sportsnet today unveils its new United By Sport brand campaign. United By Sport personifies Sportsnet’s mission to unify Canadians through sport with front-row access to the content they love, accessible from anywhere. It’s a recognition of sport as a powerful connector that brings diverse communities together.

“Sport brings Canadians together. It transcends gender, age and ethnicity, and is what allows us to put aside our differences and just share a moment. This sentiment has never been more relevant,” said Scott Moore, President of Sportsnet & NHL Properties, Rogers Media. “United By Sport embodies the culture, values and identity of Sportsnet. Whether on the ice, field or behind-the-scenes, we strive to provide the most access to and best insights on the sports that matter most to Canadians.”

The United By Sport campaign will be headlined by a 60-second TV spot and out-of-home media, complemented with radio, digital and social placements across all Rogers Media channels. The campaign will also be integrated into sporting venues across the country through Sportsnet’s NHL, NBA and MLB team partnerships.
