The Football Association has appointed Wieden+Kennedy London to support its new creative direction for the England Men’s national teams, following a competitive pitch.

Wieden+Kennedy London will start work immediately on the account alongside the in-house FA team on England Men’s brand messaging in the lead-up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup and beyond.

Our aim is to bring our fans on that journey.

"We are thrilled to be working with Wieden+Kennedy London on this new direction – they immediately understood where we are at and brought an energy, passion and sense of challenge that underlined they will be great partners."
