Michelob ULTRA is showcasing their investment in soccer and commitment to connecting with sports enthusiasts everywhere by providing one-of-a-kind fan experiences and can't-miss collaborations ahead of this summer's CONMEBOL Copa América tournament.

NEW YORK, June 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Michelob ULTRA, a beer brewed for those who live an active lifestyle, will bring Superior Enjoyment to fans with activations at all 14 U.S. host cities throughout the tournament as the Official Global Beer Sponsor of CONMEBOL Copa América USA 2024tm ? the oldest still-running continental soccer competition and one of the most iconic tournaments in sports.

Michelob ULTRA's CONMEBOL Copa América sponsorship builds on the brand's commitment to soccer, including being the Official Beer Sponsor of the U.S. Men's National Team and the Mexico Men's National Team, and its continuing support of Lionel Messi.

"Summer of Team USA" will be the biggest summer program in Michelob ULTRA's history, continuing the brand's commercial momentum after recently reaching its all-time high market share earlier this year.

"Being able to engage with some of the most passionate fans in sports through an incredible international event like CONMEBOL Copa América gives us great momentum heading into the summer season, and we couldn't be more excited to bring this plan to life," said Ricardo Marques, Vice President of Marketing for Michelob ULTRA. "Michelob ULTRA is uniquely positioned to connect with consumers across sports and social occasions, and this campaign will set us up for a dynamic summer with more international moments to put our brand point of view in front of millions of fans."

As part of the campaign, Michelob ULTRA will air a TVC that highlights the brand's point of view and celebrates the superior moments when your active life becomes your social life. "Enjoyment" will help further the connection between the brand and these players by combining the anticipation that builds as we get closer to the tournament while serving as a reminder for athletes and fans alike to savor the moment.

The TVC is part of a fully integrated marketing campaign that's built around the brand's Superior Access platform, ULTRA Pitchside, which gives 21+ fans the chance to win from three tiers of exclusive prizes, including CONMEBOL Copa América hospitality packages, gear signed by Lionel Messi plus other exclusive merch, and tickets to CONMEBOL Copa América matches. The brand will also sponsor the Superior Player of the Match Trophy, which will be presented to a top player after each match by a fan vote.

Michelob ULTRA will also host more than 1 million 21+ consumers at fan zones located at all 14 host stadiums for each of CONMEBOL Copa América's 32 matches around the country. These immersive footprints will provide guests with a superior CONMEBOL Copa América experience only Michelob ULTRA can deliver, including soccer-inspired games, live music, and access to exclusive merch.

To build excitement around this iconic tournament, Michelob ULTRA will continue its partnership with USMNT star Christian Pulisic to celebrate the tournament's superior moments happening right here at home. In addition to offering fans special-edition packaging featuring the U.S. shield logo and the Mexico shield logo, fans can expect to see Christian Pulisic in OOH advertising across the U.S.

"As a player, it's energizing to see how soccer is growing here in the U.S. through our incredible fans and overall support through brand partners like Michelob ULTRA," said Christian Pulisic, USMNT Captain and a Michelob ULTRA partner. "This brand is all about bringing people together through an active lifestyle, which is something I directly relate to and know fans of the USMNT will continue to connect with."

Michelob ULTRA is also collaborating with iconic global sports brand and CONMEBOL Copa América sponsor, PUMA, on a limited-edition collection, which fans can enter to win via the brand's ULTRA Pitchside platform. The collection is inspired by PUMA Cumbre, the official match ball of CONMEBOL Copa América. The PUMA Cumbre name is a nod to the mountain ranges that stretch across all of America, and the design is based on the shape of the continent and the 16 countries that will come together to compete this summer at the tournament.
