DoorDash leveraged the power of an NRL Finals sponsorship to deliver high impact marketing moments


DoorDash wanted to position their brand as the NRL's only convenience 'On-demand Delivery Partner' providing enhanced services through broader retail partnerships and a point of difference compared to other delivery providers. The challenge was to tell Australia that DoorDash has arrived, and is here to stay.


DoorDash needed to drive conversion of new users and app downloads. By leveraging Nine’s exclusive coverage of every Finals match, DoorDash creatively showcased their service as the ultimate on demand delivery partner for any need.


This came to life through integrated broadcast assets including a situational content series utilising the power of Nine talent and AR ball delivery.​

"The NRL on Nine is a powerful platform, allowing us to reach a passionate fan base and amplify our NRL partnership. Through Nine, we capitalised on the strength of their broadcast to create a suite of assets that drove engagement with fans and generated great results."​
