Hyundai Gets Into Driver’s Seat For 2018 NFL, NBC 'Sunday Night Football'

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

August 30, 2018:
To support its fourth season as an official NFL sponsor, Hyundai said it would unveil traditional, digital and experiential marketing “designed to enhance the experience for fans.”

A key element for Hyundai is signing on as the new presenting sponsor of NBC’s Sunday Night Football Kickoff show, complete with marquee presence leading into the prime-time game each week.

Hyundai’s NFL marketing program begins on Sept. 6 with the 2018 NFL Kickoff Driven by Hyundai in Philadelphia, leading to the Super Bowl LII champion Eagles hosting the Atlanta Falcons.

For the fourth consecutive season, Hyundai is the presenting sponsor of the NFL’s Kickoff celebration, this year at Penn’s Landing  (Columbus Boulevard at Market Street) in Philadelphia.

“Everyone at Hyundai is excited for the start of the NFL season and the opportunity to engage with football fans across the country,” Dean Evans, CMO for Hyundai Motor America, said in a statement.

“Our new NBC Sunday Night Football sponsorship is a perfect complement to our overall NFL marketing program and allows us to reach the NFL’s largest broadcast audience each week. Passion is a shared value between the NFL and Hyundai and we plan on showcasing that throughout the season.”’

As part of its activation, Hyundai will a sponsor a custom-branded content series, “Cover 2,” that will provide a close look at some of the league’s best rivalries.

Hyundai said the three-part series would bring together a former player from each of the teams playing that night, “who will discuss aspects of the rivalry that make it special to them, the fans and the teams, while driving around the home-team city in a Hyundai Santa Fe.”

The videos will run during three of this year’s match-ups: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh  Steelers, (Sept. 30), Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers (Oct. 21) and Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (Nov. 25).

A 30-second version of each video will air during the broadcast and people will be directed to HyundaiUSA.com to watch the completed piece.

According to  Dan Lovinger, evp-advertising sales, for NBC Sports Group, “We’re excited to welcome Hyundai as the new presenting sponsor of our weekly Sunday Night Football Kickoff show, and to work with them to build an unparalleled marketing program to reach the largest, avid fan base in sports.”

Sunday Night Football has been prime time TV’s No. 1 show for an unprecedented seven consecutive seasons, averaging more than 18 million viewers each week last season.
