NHLPA Brews New Deal With Budweiser For Canadian Marketing, Activation

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

June 14, 2013: The National Hockey League Players’ Assn. has signed a multi-year deal with Budweiser Canada and will support with marketing, activations and experiential "touch points" throughout the country.

Financial details were not disclosed.

The alliance, which started during the Stanley Cup with a commercial that aired across the country, is intended "to bring hockey fans closer to their favo]rite players and the game they love [and to] create more experiential touch points between hockey fans and players."

The NHL itself has a marketing alliance with Molson Coors Canada, as well as MillerCoors (Coors Light) in the U.S.

“Budweiser has a long-term commitment to supporting hockey at all levels from coast-to-coast and our partnership with the NHLPA allows us to extend our passion for hockey to include the best players in the world” Kyle Norrington, marketing director for Budweiser Canada, said in a statement. “Our NHLPA sponsorship aligns with Budweiser’s goal to make hockey more exciting, more fun and more accessible for Canadians. We’re looking forward to bringing even more great times to hockey fans from coast-to-coast.”

According to Mike Ouellet, NHLPA chief of business affairs, “This partnership will provide us with an opportunity to work closely with Budweiser to creatively connect our Canadian fan base with their hockey heroes,” said, . “Through this multi-season sponsorship, we look forward to extending hockey fans’ connections to the players beyond the ice.”

The launch spot, "Long Distance Calls," stars the Doughty family cheering on their son, Drew, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings. The family is shown at home watching the game on TV, then celebrating after an L.A. goal with a Budweiser Red Light. No players, including Doughty, are actually seen. (See the full spot here.)
