REEBOK GIVES FINAL OLYMPIC PUSH TO CARRY THROUGH CHRISTMAS
Published June 4, 1996
Reebok will "ramp up" its Olympic campaign for the NBA Finals and into the Games with $35-40M in outlays domestically and overseas. The campaign is designed to build momentum for a unified second half push through Christmas, according to BRANDWEEK. Reebok's Olympic campaign will "unleash" Reebok's endorsement stable with Emmitt Smith interacting with 19 athletes, including a cameo of Shaquille O'Neal in his summer film role, "Kazaam." Media will include Reebok's $20M exclusivity on NBC's Olympic coverage, as well as radio and $6-9M on local Olympic coverage overseas (BRANDWEEK, 6/3 issue). YOUR PLANET, THEIR CLOTHES: Reebok will sponsor 45 countries in Atlanta through its "emerging markets" program; seven NOCs, and a number of teams including the Chinese, Dutch, and Swedish track teams, the South Korean basketball team and the U.S. gymnastics and handball teams (Reebok).
