Telemundo Deportes FIFA Women’s Cup Marketing Honors Growth, Efforts Of Athletes

By Barry Janoff

May 1, 2019: Telemundo Deportes, a division of the NBC Sports Group and the exclusive Spanish-language home in the U.S. of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup France, has launched its lead multi-media campaign for the upcoming tournament,

Under the tag line, "Si lucharon para jugarlo, cuida lo que van a hacer para ganarlo" ("If they fought to play it, watch what they are going to do to win it"), the effort honors the dedication and achievements of female soccer athletes in the U.S. and around the world.

Initial elements of the campaign have launched across Telemundo platforms.

New creative will roll out as the tournament approaches and then during the games, scheduled for July 7-Aug. 7.

Fox Sports is the official English-language broadcast partner in the U.S.

Special content will spotlight four world-class female soccer stars expected to play in this summer’s tournament: U.S. striker Christen Press, Argentine goalkeeper Vanina Correa, Chilean defender Su Helen Galaz and Brazilian defender Érika Dos Santos.

The lead spot offers, "¡Entrega pura! Ellas lo sacrifican todo por el fútbol y la Copa del Mundo” ("Pure delivery! They sacrifice everything for football and the World Cup") and shares that, “33% of players combine soccer with other work; 50% do not receive pay.”

Another spot, “Trabajo y Fútbol” (Work and Soccer), relates, "Ellas lo dan todo por el fútbol” ("They give everything for soccer").

In the main spot, interspersed with on-the-pitch action, text reads, “Sin descanso alguno, las jugadoras tienen un grado de dedicación gigante. Recuerda que la Copa Mundial Femenina la podrás disfrutar aqui” ("Without any rest, the players have a great degree of dedication. Remember that you can enjoy the Women's World Cup here: Telemundo Deportes").

Telemundo Deportes said that as part of the campaign, and through its corporate social responsibility platform “El Poder En Ti” (The Power in You), it is "deepening its partnership with the U.S. Soccer Foundation to drive support for soccer programs and safe places to play for girls and boys in underserved communities."

Building off its 2018 partnership with USSF, Telemundo said it would make an initial donation of $50,000 to "provide girls in underserved communities across the U.S. with free access to the Foundation’s soccer-based youth development programs."

In addition, Telemundo Deportes’ FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign will integrate a call-to-action message across content to raise additional funds for the U.S. Soccer Foundation.

“With this campaign we aim not only to highlight the stars of the game and get people excited to watch the Women’s World Cup, but also to help inspire young women to reach their full potential through participating in soccer,”  Karen Barroeta, svp-marketing and creative for Telemundo Networks, said via the media company.

“Telemundo is honored to join forces with the U.S. Soccer Foundation to enable more girls to get in the game while enriching the communities that we serve.”
