Ke Yona (it's time) for #Ads24diski18!

10 Jul 2018

As excitement builds for the World Cup semi-finals, Ads24 kicked off its own series of high-energy football-styled activations last week to showcase the reach of its popular mass market titles. Now in its second year #Ads24Diski18! is proving even more popular than last year’s event, with agency members blasting vuvuzelas, dancing, singing and egging their teams on in ferocious rounds of foosball mania.

The aim of the in-agency activations is to showcase the potential and reach of Ads24's popular mass market titles: Daily Sun, Die Son, Soccer Laduma and Kick Off. These titles cater for 64% of South Africa’s population and reach one in two South Africans every month. The popular titles are serious drivers of local economy and culture, with 35% of readers in full time employment and 2.7 million (46%) of readers claiming that they use advertising inserts to plan their shopping, while 1.8 million (30%) of our readers buy products as a result of seeing them on advertising inserts.

Team players were presented with a finger football desk drops to hone their skills but the ultimate challenge lies in Ads24’s new and improved online diski game. Agencies and clients working with Ads24 are invited to play to up their chances of winning by visiting Simply register, pick a team, build a player and take a shot at the goal to stand a chance of winning one of six Sony PlayStation 4 consoles and a FIFA 18 game. Contenders are encouraged to share their score on social media and tag @Ads24 and use the #Ads24Diski18 hashtag.
