BILLY BOY and the European Esports organisation Unicorns of Love (UoL) agreed on a partnership, which sees the famous manufacturer of condoms and e.g. lubricants appointed as the official partner of the pink unicorns. The agreement includes a logo presence of BILLY BOY on the sleeve of the official UoL jerseys and is supplemented by various activation measures. The campaign partnership was brokered by Lagardère Sports, the comprehensive marketing partner of UoL, and will last until the end of 2018.
“At BILLY BOY we are very excited about our ‘first time’ in Esports and cannot think of a more perfect partner than the Unicorns of Love. We had it going on right from the start and something clicked between us and UoL, because the Unicorns are not only the sexiest team in Esports, but were also excited to use their influence as a team to jointly educate their fanbase about safer sex and responsibility”, explains Johannes Zerger, brand manager at BILLY BOY.
Jos Mallant, CEO of Unicorns of Love, says: “It is a great sign that a brand as famous as BILLY BOY is not only on board as our partner in general but also secured a conspicuous logo presence on our sleeves. This partnership is simply a perfect and authentic fit: We will benefit tremendously from BILLY BOY’s market recognition whilst they will actively engage with their relevant target groups. And besides the marketing aspect we see it as our responsibility to address the sensitive and important topic around safer sex amongst our fans.”
Thomas Ottl, Director Esports at Lagardère Sports, adds: “This partnership is cheeky, young, dynamic – and fitting! BILLY BOY and the Unicorns share the same casual and at the same time creative communicative approach towards their target groups, which is why we are not only delighted to have brought BILLY BOY on the sleeve of UoL but also cannot wait to get started regarding the planned activation measures.”
