Yokohama ‘honoured’ to receive NTDA Marketing Campaign of the Year Award
Yokohama stated that it was “honoured” to secure the NTDA Marketing Campaign of the Year Award 2017. In its award-winning campaign, the manufacturer utilised its partnership with Chelsea Football Club to generate high-profile awareness of tyre safety issues, creating a powerful call to action encouraging football fans to check their tyres and travel safely.
The campaign strategy, which included events at Stamford Bridge Stadium and Chelsea FC’s training ground, incorporated digital marketing and social media activity across a number of platforms, successfully reaching thousands of motorists in the UK.
The award was presented to James Brown, marketing manager, Yokohama HPT at the NTDA’s annual award ceremony, which was held at Double Tree by Hilton at Stadium MK and hosted by BBC sports broadcaster John Inverdale.

Speaking at the ceremony, Brown said: “It really is an honour to receive the prestigious Marketing Campaign of the Year Award, however this would not have been possible without the fantastic support and involvement from Chelsea FC, who have now become TyreSafe supporters in their own right. Every week, hundreds of thousands of football fans jump in their cars and travel around the UK to support their teams and we are proud to have played an important role in helping promote tyre safety issues and ensure they arrive safely.”
Yokohama’s win follows a number of other significant accolades for the business in recent months. Earlier this year it was also named as TyreSafe’s Tyre Manufacturer of the Year for the second year running in recognition of its efforts in raising awareness about tyre safety.
