BE ACTIVE: MARKETING WEEK's Joseph & Shields noted the likes of adidas, Heineken and Jaguar "are looking beyond traditional media to real-time marketing and co-creation to maximise the competition’s growing global reach." Several brands will pay U.K.-based ITV up to $376,000 (all figures U.S.) for a spot during the Champions League final, a 65% increase on the average price, with the broadcaster expecting to gain around $12M in revenues from its coverage. Social media is expected to "play a major component in non-sponsors marketing activity around the match." adidas "will assemble a team of marketers, artists and agency members to create campaigns in response to events during Saturday’s match." Heineken has "taken the Champions League Trophy on a global tour with fans able to share picture and videos of themselves around each location." The brewer "is using the content in its 'Road to the Final' online campaign." Jaguar "is partnering with mobile app Shazam to allow customers to explore its latest F-Type sports car and win the chance to test drive it" (MARKETING WEEK, 5/21).
