The UEFA Europa League involves clubs from 55 national associations from across Europe and each season attracts a global cumulative TV audience of 980 million across all programming. As the world’s largest professional club football competition, this partnership will provide Kia Motors with an opportunity to increase their global brand awareness, to build consumer loyalty and to engage with automotive dealers across Europe.
Tae Hyun (Thomas) Oh, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Kia Motors Corporation, commented: “We are incredibly excited to continue to work with UEFA in sharing the values, commitment and passion for the sport of football. This partnership provides us with an opportunity to increase Kia’s global brand awareness further, while engaging with a huge audience of global football fans. The UEFA Europa League is one of the most competitive global football tournaments and provides the brand with an exciting platform from which to connect with existing Kia customers and prospective buyers around the world.”
Kia Motors will work together with UEFA to create the first UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour. This will give fans across the world the chance to see the trophy and meet some of the legends of the game.
