FC Copenhagen put a lot of work into the relaunch of the most beloved mascot in Copenhagen. That works! Most Danes already know about Leo, and if they didn’t before the videos, they do now. 

A mascot figure is a great frontfigure for a football team and a brand. The children connects the mascot with the sunday family trip to watch football. At the stadium Leo meets and entertains the children.
