Make your brand stand out with a unique opportunity to sponsor the Tethered Blimp for Sky Sports Super Sunday football coverage
The ACS Sponsor Funded Tethered Blimp has been a regular feature of the Premier League for many years providing stunning aerial images of the football stadiums and the surrounding landscapes. The Blimp is fully funded by sponsorship with the aerial imagery supplied free of charge to the broadcaster and in return they are committed to delivering on-air visual and commentator verbal references to the sponsor branded blimp (2 per event). The 19m long Tethered Blimp is operated within close proximity to the stadium so the sponsor will also receive extensive ambient exposure
By providing these aerial images to the broadcaster which significantly enhances the viewing experience of the coverage of these live matches across the season, a sponsor can recieve in return, a strong association with the event with in-match broadcast brand and ambient brand exposure to a captive, high media value audience. The sponsorship of the Tethered Blimp is exclusive for every SKY Sports Super Sunday Football providing a unique and unusual branding/corporate platform opportunity which stands out clearly from traditional onscreen and venue advertising mediums.
