The Drum Recommends is a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from advertisers. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance and the quality and range of their services, as well as price. In order to become recommended for a service, agencies must receive a minimum of three client ratings.

Since the 2022 World Cup kicked off this week in Qatar, it’s a good moment to take a look at the Recommended agencies that have expertise in sports marketing. Below you’ll find each agency, plus its staff headcount and office locations.
