UEFA Champions League

The Sponsorship


After six years as Official Sponsor of the UEFA Champions League UniCredit has not only renewed the sponsorship but also extended it to all major European club football tournaments including the UEFA Europa League, UEFA Futsal Cup Finals, UEFA Super Cup, UEFA Women's Champions League and UEFA Youth League. 

This makes UniCredit the Official Bank of UEFA Club Competitions.


Over six years now, UniCredit's sponsorship engagement has considerably contributed to the bank's 'brand awareness', 'brand image', 'customer and employee engagement' and 'propensity to buy'.


"Over the past years the partnership with UEFA has been a driving factor in achieving our set objectives. Having effectively established our brand, the augmented rights package allows us to shift our focus to support the daily business and empower the local brands. It will enable us to reach even more football fans across Europe, granting us additional sales and relationship management opportunities." states CEO, Mr Federico Ghizzoni.


For UniCredit, the UEFA Club Competitions as the most powerful ongoing football property provides a wide range of marketing, communication and branding opportunities integrated into UniCredit's global and local marketing plans to support its master brand strategy.


A number of different campaigns in connection with the sponsorship and integrating product promotions have been launched in the core UniCredit territories since the beginning of the engagement in 2009.

One of the sole and exclusive rights UniCredit holds is the possibility to present the UEFA Champions League Trophy to football fans in Europe via a road-show event: the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour. With this road show, UniCredit brings the iconic Trophy to thousands of football fans at the kick-off of each season with the aim of making the brand more tangible and letting fans experience what UniCredit and its sponsorship stand for via a unique experience.


Each season cumulates in the most sought-after sports events in Europe. The UEFA Champions League Final in one of the European top cities fascinates fans from all over the world every year. UniCredit is being part of this spectacle for the fifth time this season, initiating events and exclusive experiences for over 1,200 guests under the roof of a special event-motto.


Another sole and exclusive right within the sponsorship package is the possibility of producing the "Official UEFA Champions League Match Coin provided by UniCredit". The special keep-sake has given numerous UniCredit guests the unique opportunity of handing this coin over to the referee prior to the official coin toss. Linked to the production of an "Official Coin Collection" UniCredit has the right to issue a limited edition of the coin.


To activate the sponsorship in the field of digital and social media UniCredit has built up a "digital eco-system" that permanently promotes its engagement via numerous channels such as the official sponsorship Microsite, a dedicated Facebook fan page and a YouTube channel.


Each year, the highlights of the season, the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour presented by UniCredit and the UEFA Champions League Final, are communicated through the advertising campaigns hosted by the official sponsorship Microsite (unicredit.eu/champions)  inviting users to participate in the respective initiatives and driving traffic also to local bank websites in an emotional way.


The UniCredit Champions Facebook fan page (facebook.com/UnicreditChampions) engages its more than 85,500 fans (status: January 2014) around ongoing campaigns offering exclusive content such as stories and impressions captured by the blogger during the Trophy Tour or special riddles, apps and other initiatives developed exclusively for the social media community.

Exciting videos connected to the UEFA Champions League and UniCredit's sponsorship are hosted on the UniCredit Champions YouTube channel (youtube.com/unicreditchampions).
