Vivo Unveils ‘My Time, My FIFA World Cup’ Global Campaign With Sight, Sound

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

May 23, 2018:
Vivo, the official smartphone sponsor for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, has launched a global campaign, “My Time, My FIFA World Cup.

This is the first World Cup activation for Vivo, which signed a six-year sponsorship agreement in 2017 with FIFA that runs through 2022, which includes sponsorship of the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup and the FIFA Confederations Cup.

The multi-platform campaign, unveiled by the company at Beijing's Olympic Forest Park, includes TV, digital, social media, on-site activation and elements involving consumers and fans, led by the Vivo Super Fan Photographer program and the Vivo Super Time project.

According to Vivo, “The thematic campaign advocates the belief that everyone can be extraordinary and calls upon people of the world to seize moments of opportunity to be extraordinary in their lives.”

Vivo said it hopes to “empower people to go beyond being just an audience at the FIFA World Cup, but to become a participant, a creator, and to enable extraordinary moments to be seen, shared and remembered.”

The Vivo Super Time project involves a series of music-themed activities throughout the tournament, including the Vivo Super DJ show at all 64 matches.

It will culminate at the FIFA World Cup Final Match show on July 15, where Vivo said it would create a special Vivo Super Time moment during the performance of the World Cup official song.

Vivo said this would be the first time that FIFA has had a sponsor participate in presenting the official song performance during the Final Match show.

The Vivo Super Fan Photographers' program will recruit football fans, consumers and special guests who are passionate about photography to participate in the 2018 (and 2022) FIFA World Cup, and “document extraordinary moments through unprecedented close-up access.”

Vivo has also launched a 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia V9 Blue limited-edition smartphone.

According to Deng Li, Vivo brand vp, "'Camera & Music' are not only a part of Vivo's brand DNA, but also the two key ways by which people can fully experience, capture and share extraordinary moments around them through their smartphones.

“For this year's FIFA World Cup, Vivo will leverage these two elements and our innovative technologies to help fans bring to life "My Time, My FIFA World Cup.”

FIFA global partners include adidas, Coca-Cola, Wanda, Gazprom, Hyundai-Kia Motors, Qatar Airways and Visa.

FIFA World Cup sponsors include Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser), Hisense, McDonald’s, Mengniu and Vivo.
