Eurosport finds passion in rebrand, new image campaign

Eurosport, a Discovery Communications channel, will update its on-air brand Friday, built around the slogan “Fuel Your Passion.”

The network airs many marquee sporting events across Europe, and will be the European broadcaster for Olympics in 2016 in a large rights deal.

“Today’s launch of the new brand identity is another huge leap forward to make Eurosport the preferred destination for sports fans everywhere. Our new fan-centric strapline ‘Fuel Your Passion’ articulates what has been a transformative year for Eurosport,” said Peter Hutton, CEO of Eurosport.
