Falken sponsors Atlético de Madrid
Tyre brand Falken has agreed a sponsorship deal with the successful, tradition-steeped Spanish football team Club Atlético de Madrid for the 2018/19 season. The Spanish club occupies second position in the UEFA ranking, they are the current champions of the UEFA Europa League, and have just won the UEFA Super Cup in Tallin, Estonia. Falken has extended its marketing via football sponsorships across Europe in the past few years, partnering with major clubs, such as Liverpool FC in the UK.
The partnership includes standard sponsorship rights with hospitality, presence in the club’s sponsorship area, promotional activities, branding and visibility in the Wanda Metropolitano at all the club’s home matches in LaLiga and the Spanish Cup.
Falken expects this partnership to help the brand increase its visibility in international markets and address its target audience. In addition, the partnership will be used to implement dealer activations.
Iñigo Aznar, Atletico de Madrid commercial director, commented about this cooperation: “We are keen to work with Falken as Atlético de Madrid sponsor for the current season. It is one of the world’s most recognised brands in its sector and reinforces the club’s commercial internationalisation strategy. We hope this is just the start of a long-term partnership over the coming seasons.”
“The cooperation with Atlético de Madrid is a central ingredient of Falken’s sports activities,” said Markus Bögner, managing director and COO at Falken Tyre Europe GmbH. “With its popularity and attractiveness in Spain and the whole world, this outstanding club promises us above all an enormous brand visibility.”
