- Espn Deportes
Portada reported last week the EPSN Deportes ad campaign for Sportcenter. This launch is the network’s first SportsCenter ad campaign, “Sports Expert”, which features world renowned soccer star Lionel Messi. The campaign will be rolled out this week and includes TV, radio, print, out of home (OOH) and online.
The campaign focuses on connecting the brand with the consumers through four initial TV spots, each featuring a different Latin star where each showcases their vast sports knowledge. This campaign allows athletes, celebrities and average fans alike to present themselves as overall ‘sports experts’ because they watch SportsCenter.
The campaign’s concept was created by Hispanic Agency LatinWorks and produced and filmed in Mexico and Los Angeles by Tita Lombardi (Babel, Rudo y Cursi) and David Fleer (No Sleep ‘til Madison.)
The SportsCenter campaign kicked off last week and will feature a new TV spot every week for the next month. The campaign will also feature OOH and local radio in New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
