Arjen Robben – a soccer player who is commonly viewed as one of the best players of his generation – decided to enrich his career by going back to the soccer club that started it all for him: the Dutch Premier Division Soccer Club FC Groningen in the Netherlands.
This club’s success is driven by on-location sales, sponsorship deals, and their connection to Dutch soccer fans. Robben sought to increase the impact of FC Groningen’s marketing efforts, and Spotzi’s Profiling platform soon proved to be key in their new data-driven approach to advertising.
Spotzi’s solution aimed at driving the club’s popularity and funding by helping FC Groningen develop a more data-driven marketing strategy towards the Dutch soccer fanbase and potential sponsors. This was done by profiling their existing fans and partners in order to identify the unifying traits amongst their audiences.

In 2021, FC Groningen’s partnership with Spotzi and subsequent data-driven approach to their campaigns allowed them to secure lucrative sponsorships and helped put this soccer club on the map.
Spotzi’s profiling tools can offer insights into the demographics and behaviours of a company’s existing clients/customers, store visitors, or OOH audiences. FC Groningen was able to use Spotzi’s platform to analyze their current fanbase in order to build a concrete profile of their target audience. This audience data could then be used to target like-minded consumers across the club’s most promising markets.
