LiveScore have signed Cristiano Ronaldo as its Official Global Brand Ambassador. The groundbreaking deal will see the world’s most famous footballer and five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo unite with LiveScore as the brand continues its rapid evolution as a major global sports media force.
Launching ahead of the upcoming European Championship this summer, the relationship will span at least two domestic football seasons and next year’s World Cup.
Central to the partnership will be a global ATL creative campaign, including LiveScore’s first TV spot, amplified by a digital campaign which will harness the power of both LiveScore and Ronaldo’s vast global audiences.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s image will be used across LiveScore’s digital inventory and content, closely aligning the Portuguese legend with one of the world’s leading real-time sports updates providers.
LiveScore captivates sports audiences by delivering premium content and engaging products to fans across 200 territories worldwide. Cristiano Ronaldo’s role as the most high-profile and influential player in the game is shown by his combined social media following exceeding half a billion fans, representing a hugely relevant audience for LiveScore to connect with.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Official Global Ambassador for LiveScore, said: “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.
