For eight years I headed up the FIFA team at ADM. This team worked with all their sponsors – including some of the biggest brands in the world – to develop their merchandise and POS campaigns in support of key FIFA tournaments. I made sure that ADM developed creative merchandise that supported the sponsors’ brand values and goals for the tournament.
The 2014 World Cup™ in Brasil allowed us to develop original ideas that tapped into the country’s confidence, music, and love of football.
After the vuvuzela of South Africa, ADM pushed for a Brasilian equivalent. We developed the ‘Brasil Bottle’ – a unique combination of the distinctive local apito whistle and caixa rattle, packaged in the iconic Coke bottle shape. It was one of the most original and sought-after items at the Word Cup, adding to the Coca-Cola brand.
That’s good brand support.
