The Sports Campaign aims to unequivocally establish Myntra as the foremost destination for all your sportswear needs.  A unique attribute for this category is need for advice and keeping this in mind we have added some features to assist customers while shopping. We have also created a specialized sports store on the Myntra app to cater to the unique needs of customers and we are seeking to drive awareness for these offerings through this campaign”

Speaking on the occasion, Ayesha Ghosh, General Manger, Taproot Dentsu, said “As an e-commerce platform, Myntra’s edge lies in the width and depth of offerings, as well as the ease with which to access them. To launch their sport offering, we felt this route works best, as it covers the A-Z of sport and makes for an interesting way to display the sheer number of sporting brands that are available on Myntra. It speaks to anyone, whether serious about sport or not. While not the focus of the story, the service aspects of assisted shopping and shoe finder technology convey the required expertise for Myntra to take the high ground on sport.”

Speaking about the campaign, Pallavi Chakravarti, Executive Creative Director, Taproot Dentsu said “We live in a world where more and more people are exploring and enjoying sports and fitness-related activities. Our campaign has a simple message, delivered in a light-hearted way, to encourage this growing trend. You needn’t be a pro to be into sports, you just need a nudge to set the ball rolling. And Myntra Sport has everything anyone needs to keep going, once they decide to get going.”
