Hankook is to sponsor to the UEFA Europa League for the the next three season, through to the final in 2015.
Hankook will benefit from extensive brand exposure, including perimeter board advertising in the stadiums, media backdrops during flash interviews, as well as during official UEFA press conferences.
The competition also attracts extensive live television coverage, plus highlight packages, not only in Europe, but throughout the world.
“We are excited about our new partnership with the UEFA Europa League,” Hee-Se Ahn, Vice President Marketing Hankook Tire Europe, explained.
“Football sponsorships represent an integral component of our European marketing strategy. The emotionality in football is a perfect match to our company motto ‘Driving Emotion’.
