Tecate sponsors boxing event with “Claim Your Corner” campaign

Boxing fans prepare to enjoy one of the most awaited boxing matches of our time for which Tecate will be the official sponsor of, as is tradition.

The standoff is between Saul “El Canelo” Alvarez, who holds the worldwide title, and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.

The world-class event is set for the date of the Independence of Mexico, September 16.

Under the campaign, “Claim your Corner,” Tecate will carry out a retail sail promotion that will take place eight weeks before the fight.

According to the campaign, the promotion covers all the emotion of the standoff, since it includes boxing fans and consumers of the beer all over the world.

Through impactful point-of-view (POS) sales, consumers will be encouraged to send text messages to receive a link that will give them the opportunity to instantly win Tecate® prizes, as well as enter a drawing to win tickets to attend this grand sporting event.

The promotion is designed to create consideration and commitment among main Tecate consumers, Hispanics. A third of boxing fans are Latinos and watch boxing twice as much as the average consumer, according to Nielson.

Hispanics buy pay-per-view fights four times more than the rest of the population.
