FedEx Shareholders Put Sponsorship To A Vote

 by Staff  |  30 Sep 2014 at 08:30 AM  |  0 Comments

#nfl #pr #investors

FedEx shareholders put the shipping and logistics company's largest sponsorship to a vote on Monday. The proposal, submitted at the company's annual shareholder meeting in Memphis, asked proposed a vote on whether the company should "drop or distance ties with the NFL Washington Redskins team, logos and/or stadium sponsorship until the franchise changes the team’s name." Signed in 1999, Fedex is 15 years into the 25 year, $205 million naming rights agreement.

The proposal was rejected by more than a 10-1 margin...

The vote comes as pressure mounts on some team sponsors to take a position on whether the team name should be changed with some groups threatening to boycott team sponsors over the issue.

#activation #deals #apps

From Uber, here's a glimpse at what the ridesharing service's first app integration with a pro sports team will look like when launched in October. On home gamedays within the Uber app, a Kings team insignia will appear for users in the Sacramento market that promotes the game and provides the ability to hail a ride to it with a single click. As for the team's own mobile app, Kings fans will be able to access Uber via the “Going to the Game” or “Transportation” section. If this one goes well, look for more win-win deals like this in the ridesharing category, which just saw Uber's top competition sign on to become the official rideshare partner of MLB.com.

NFL Enlists Sponsor Support In Fight Against Domestic Violence

#nfl #vz #pr

While some marquee brands like EA Sports and Nike have taken definitive steps to distance themselves from Ray Rice, most NFL league sponsors seem to be cautiously supportive of the league's response and at least one league sponsor, Verizon, is taking an active role in working with the NFL in the wake of the Ray Rice incident.

"When this first broke, Roger came to Verizon and said would you help educate us and create a program to combat domestic violence because you are one of the bellwethers in this area and our teams have been meeting and helping them create their own internal programs here," Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam told the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference last week. "So we’re very supportive of Roger and very supportive of the NFL and we’re going to wait and s...

Sponsorships are almost never permanent. These days there is always a term and an "out clause." That kind of goes out the window though when you get a gigantic tattoo of your sponsor. Reebok in Sweden is offering a $6,000 (40,000 SEK) crossfit sponsorship to the athlete that gets the biggest tattoo of Reebok's logo. Check out this crazy promotion...


Toyota Recalls Red Zone Sponsorship

#media #auto #activation #nfl

In response to an outcry from some fans regarding Toyota's on-field graphics during the 49ers first televised pre-season game, The Northern California Toyota Dealers Association says it will no longer run the Toyota Red Zone signage once the ball is snapped. Presumably the graphics will still be on field in between downs. Just last May, Toyota was named the exclusive auto partner of the stadium and the team. Toyota's statement:

"We're football fans too. We've heard fan feedback and it's not our intention to distract from the joy of the game. Toyota will continue to be a strong supporter of the 49ers as part of our multi-year partnership and we're working to ensure that future brand mentions won't distract from game play. During the remainder of the 49ers' pre-season games, fans and v...
