LiveScore, the global sports media business and one of the world’s leading real-time sports updates providers, has announced Cristiano Ronaldo as its Official Global Brand Ambassador.
Launching ahead of the upcoming European Championship this June, the relationship will span at least two domestic football seasons and next year’s World Cup.
The deal will see Ronaldo, one of football’s all-time greats and a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, unite with LiveScore in what is no doubt a groundbreaking coup for the sporting brand. It comes at a pivotal time for LiveScore who are seeking to continue their rapid evolution as a major global sports media force.
Central to the partnership will be a global ATL creative campaign which will include LiveScore’s first TV spot and a digital campaign which will harness the power of both LiveScore and Ronaldo’s vast global audiences. The partnership will closely align the Portuguese legend with one of the world’s leading real-time sports updates providers as his image will be used across LiveScore’s digital inventory and content.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Official Global Ambassador for LiveScore, was delighted to have partnered with LiveScore.
“I’ve used the LiveScore app to keep up to date with the latest scores for many years, so I’m really excited to begin such a natural new partnership. Throughout my career every goal has always been about more than a score to me, and I know LiveScore has been there every step of the way, to keep my fans across moments that have defined me,” he said.
“LiveScore and I are connected by a drive to be the greatest at what we do every single day. I cannot wait to unite our combined audiences of football fans with amazing content, moments and goals in the next exciting stage of my career.”
Marketing Director at LiveScore, Ric Leask, recognised the significance of the partnership for both LiveScore and Ronaldo’s brands.
“In a year that has seen LiveScore rapidly evolve as a global sports media business, this landmark new relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo is without doubt the biggest moment so far. There is simply no bigger sportsperson – past or present – than Cristiano Ronaldo, who continues to captivate fans around the world with his brilliance on the pitch,” he said.
“With a world record 777 career goals and 31 club and international honours, we believe he truly is the ‘Greatest of all Time’. We should know, as LiveScore has been there to bring news of every goal to millions of fans around the world.
“Combined with the fact that his game is built on speed, reliability and simplicity, key strengths also synonymous with the LiveScore brand, there could be no more authentic and better fit for our business. We can’t wait to kick-off our partnership and bring our global audience closer than ever to the GOAT.”
