Codere continues ITALIA collaboration for River Plate themed advertising campaign
Codere’s sponsorship deal with Argentinian top-flight football club Club Atlético River Plate will feature at the centre of the firm’s latest marketing campaign.
The ‘Hinchadores’ advertising series was developed in partnership with marketing advertising agency ITALIA, and will serve to promote the ‘strategic partnership’ with the Argentine Primera División club.
Active in the European and Latin American gaming sectors, Codere partnered with River Plate In July 2021 and the deal was enhanced last month.
Alberto Telias, Codere Online CMO, commented: “Our intention is to be close to the fans, enriching their experience so that they share their excitement for the game, feeling like one of the team. In addition to continuing to position ourselves within Argentina and Latin America.”
River Plate players participating in the campaign include women’s team members Enzo Pérez, Jonatan Maidana, Javier Pinola and Justina Morcillo, and the videos were filmed inside the club’s facilities.
ITALIA had previously collaborated with Codere on its last advertising campaign ‘The Next Big Move Is Yours’, which will broadcast throughout the remainder of the year.
Codere is currently the newly regulated gambling market in the City of Buenos Aires, and ‘The Next Big Move is Yours’ focused more on the firm’s customer-base as opposed to its sporting sponsorships.
“Becoming River Plate’s main sponsor is historic for a brand like Codere,” said Agustín Obregón, General Creative Director of ITALIA.
“Almost as historic as having your players act in an advertisement. That is why we wanted to take advantage of it to show how a fan feels when he bets on his team: as one more player.”
