Bridgestone's NFL Sponsorship Will Continue 5 More Years
Bridgestone Americas Inc. and the National Football League (NFL) have extended their sponsorship agreement for an additional five years.
The deal advances the “Bridgestone Performance Moments” campaign platform, which includes the award for top performance play of the year at NFL Honors during Super Bowl week.
“We love the game, but connecting fans and drivers who recognize performance, innovation and endurance is vital to why Bridgestone chooses to sponsor the National Football League,” says Philip Dobbs, chief marketing officer, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
“The NFL relationship provides an ideal platform for millions of women and men of all ages to engage with and learn about world-class products and services from Bridgestone.”
Bridgestone’s year-long campaign begins at NFL Combine and culminates with the Super Bowl. It includes national advertising, consumer marketing programs and promotions, and broadcast and digital elements.
“We are pleased to work with Bridgestone to reach fans year-round in authentic and innovative ways,” says Renie Anderson, the NFL’s senior vice president of sponsorship and partnership management. “Bridgestone provides unique experiences that have resonated with football fans across the country. We are very proud of the relationship to date and excited about the future.”
The new sponsorship agreement also includes trademark rights, activation and player funds, and broadcast and online media elements. Bridgestone also will maintain sponsorship rights at all major NFL events, including NFL Kickoff, NFL Draft, NFL Experience and NFL Media Fan Gallery at the Super Bowl.
In addition to its sponsorship of the NFL, Bridgestone also has local and regional sponsorships with a number of NFL clubs, including the Nashville-based Tennessee Titans.
