Is Rugby Better Than Football? Time to Settle the Score

Leading Men's Retailer Jacamo to Kick Off Ultimate Battle of the Hashtags

LONDON--(Marketwire - Oct 24, 2012) - Men's clothing retailer Jacamo is kick-starting a brand new social media campaign to find out just how loyal football and rugby fans are to their sports.

The brand will referee a series of debates across Facebook and Twitter as the two respective tribes fight to clinch victory and answer the ultimate question: which is better -- rugby or football?

"There has always been a friendly rivalry between fans of the two sports," says Martin Roberts at Jacamo. "It's definitely apparent from the banter in the Jacamo office and we've noticed it amongst the fans on our Facebook page, too. With the help of two hashtags, we're providing both camps with the voice to share their passion and loyalty to their games."

The battle commences on Friday, 9th November. Fans of the sports can get involved and share banter throughout the day using the hashtags #teamrugby and #teamfootball, to settle the score.

The victor will be determined by the volume of social interactions, including uses of the hashtags plus Facebook likes, comments and shares in support of each team.

Forget team rivalries #teamfootball; embrace your fellow fans #teamrugby, and unite to prove once and for all which sport truly is superior.
