Premier League and Cadbury Announce Three Year Partnership

Premier League and Cadbury Announce Three Year Partnership

09:31 2017

British and global confectionery brand Cadbury and The Premier League have come together to establish a three-year partnership, kicking off from the start of the 2017/18 soccer season. This agreement brings together two famous names that have a unique place within popular culture, and the hearts of people in the UK and Ireland.

For Cadbury, the UK’s favourite chocolate, this builds on the brand’s history of iconic partnership including its sponsorship of London 2012, and provides another platform for the brand to bring moments of joy to millions of people, through the excitement and thrill of the Premier league. Cadbury is one of Mondelēz International’s billion-dollar brands.

Through the partnership, Cadbury will also join forces with the Premier League to deliver a bespoke element of Mondelez International’s existing community programme Health for Life, which is currently focused on making a sustained difference to the lifestyles of 60,000 school children. Cadbury and the Premier League will work together to create new, tailored modules focused on healthy lifestyles, expanding the programme’s reach to inspire young people in schools across the country.

Francesco Vitrano, Cadbury Brand Director, says: “For over a hundred years Cadbury has been about bringing little moments of joy to people’s lives, something that fits well with the joy created by Premier League football every day – whether it’s a moment of magic that turns a match, watching a game together with loved ones or just debating the weekend’s goals with friends. This partnership opens up fantastic opportunities to bring those moments of joy to life in new and different ways – in-store, on our packaging, in the community and other ways we hope will surprise and delight our customers. This is an incredibly exciting chance to bring together the Cadbury brand with the unmistakable Premier League brand, and a chance to be part of moments such as the Golden Boot and Golden Glove awards, and we can’t wait to start this journey with the Premier League.”

Premier League Managing Director, Richard Masters, says: “Cadbury’s popularity across the world, and our shared focus on delivering moments of joy, make this a great fit for the Premier League and we are thrilled they have chosen to work with us in what is their first ever partnership in football. We are really looking forward to working with Cadbury to celebrate the excitement of the competition, and on the plans we have to jointly grow and enhance their Health for Life project as part of the Premier League’s wide-ranging community work.”

The agreement includes Cadbury enjoying a range of rights relating to player milestones – including the Premier League’s Golden Boot and Golden Glove awards.
