Taking ahead its streak of partnering with high-ticket sporting events like the Indian Premier League, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo is now the official partner for UEFA Euro as well. The partnership will run for two seasons of the league and the brand is looking forward to creating extraordinary experiences for football fans. The brand also launched an interesting international campaign called ‘To Beautiful Moments,’ recently encouraging people to enjoy the tournament with friends, family and fellow fans, even if it means putting the phone down. In a recent conversation with exchange4media.com, Vivo India Head of Marketing Strategy Nipun Marya talked all about this association, the campaign, and what football fans can expect from the brand during the league. Edited excerpts follow.

About the partnership and Vivo’s plans for the league

As an Official Partner of UEFA EURO 2020™, we have three exclusive rights in this sponsorship, including first-ever presenting partner of the opening and closing ceremonies in EURO history, exclusive presenting partner of pre-match DJ performances and exclusive content capture as players are called to the field during the warm-up experience.

The brand will have exposure as the presenting partner of the opening ceremony held in Rome on June 11, and the closing ceremony in London on July 11. During all 51 matches throughout the tournament, Vivo will present pre-match, pitch-side 120-minute DJ performances for fans to enjoy their favourite music. 

In addition to that, we are also rolling out a #VivoSuperTime social campaign, in which fans around the world are encouraged to share videos cheering and applauding beautiful moments leading up to and during the tournament for the chance to be featured in the opening and closing ceremonies.

About 'To Beautiful Moments' campaign

We are excited to come up with this campaign which is an extension of our core pursuit of bringing Joy to the lives of people. Vivo is incredibly proud to partner with UEFA to engage with football fans across the world as we are a brand deeply connected to and invested in the like-minded passions and interests of our users. 

As a brand, we know how much smartphones can celebrate the great moments in life. But as a partner of Euro 2020, Vivo recognises that smartphones can distract from the magic of the live game. That’s why, for our Euro 2020 campaign “To Beautiful Moments”, we’re asking fans to connect and celebrate before and after the game and put the phone down to give their full attention to the matches.

About the creative strategy behind the campaign

Vivo partnered with BBH Shanghai to create and implement the “To Beautiful Moments” campaign to celebrate our sponsorship of UEFA EURO 2020™. As a global 4A company, BBH’s branches in Europe provided both invaluable insights into the European market as well as assistance in executing the campaign, aimed at bringing people together and breaking down barriers in these challenging times when people are looking to share joy and connect through sports.

The brand understands that joy comes from all kinds of daily moments. Through BBH Shanghai’s insights, we recognized that smartphones can distract from the magic of a live game.
