In August 2015, NEXEN TIRE became a partner of Manchester City FC, a football team that is supported by a huge number of fans around the world! In the ongoing 2018-19 Premier League season, NEXEN TIRE continues to be a partner of Manchester City FC.
Last season, NEXEN TIRE struck up an Official Sleeves Partnership with Manchester City FC, the first partnership of its kind in the English Premier League whereby the logo of a company is exposed on the sleeves of football uniforms. As such, NEXEN TIRE is engaging with our customers through the uniforms of Manchester City FC Players. And recently, a 2017/18 season champion trophy tour event was held at Tire Tech, NEXEN TIRE’s store dedicated to tires.
By managing to sponsor the 2018 International Champions Cup (ICC), this marks the second year in a row that NEXEN TIRE has become a sponsor of the tournament which features a great deal of major European football teams. In the tournament, NEXEN TIRE is able to spread its name through advertising panels at the stadiums and with the Manchester City FC players who play in the games.
In the 2017/18 Premier League season, Manchester City FC became the champion with a record-setting 100 points, and by also winning the championship title in the Carabao Cup, Manchester City wrapped up the season with flying colors. Manchester City FC is currently ranked 2nd in the 2018/19 Premier League, with 44 points in a total of 17 games (14 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss), and the team also has advanced to the semi-final in the Carabao Cup, displaying the strength of the champion of the previous season.
NEXEN TIRE has also been maintaining a partnership with Melbourne City FC in the Australian Premier League for two consecutive years. This is part of an effort to strengthen brand awareness of NEXEN TIRE in the Oceanian market in addition to the European market. NEXEN TIRE is slated to be a partner of Melbourne City FC for three seasons, from the 2017/18 A-League season to the 2020 A-League season.
Following Manchester City FC, Melbourne City FC has become the second city football team that NEXEN TIRE has partnered with.
During the 2018/19 A-League season, like in the case of Manchester City FC, the NEXEN TIRE logo will be prominently displayed on the sleeves of the uniforms of Melbourne City FC players, and it will also be featured on Manchester City FC’s travel kits, training equipment, and third kits.
By attaining a 2-0 win against Adelaide United on December 16, Melbourne City FC is currently ranked 4th in Australia’s A-League.
You can also witness NEXEN TIRE in German professional football. With the extension of our official sponsorship of Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt, NEXEN TIRE is carrying out various marketing activities this season as well, through advertising panels in home games and in many corners of the stadium.
Established in 1899, Eintracht Frankfurt is a prestigious football club with a history going back to more than 100 years and known in South Korea as the team Cha Bum-kun played on with a great career. Currently, Eintracht Frankfurt is ranked 5th in the 2018/19 Bundesliga, with 26 points(8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses).
In addition to football teams in the European and Australian professional leagues, NEXEN TIRE also sponsors an ice hockey team in the Czech Republic.
NEXEN TIRE is scheduled to soon launch a new plant equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in Žatec, Czech Republic. In order to increase brand awareness of NEXEN TIRE in the region and to strengthen communication with our customers, our company is continuing our sponsorship of local ice hockey team BK Mladá Boleslav and is exposing our brand all around BK Mladá Boleslav's home stadium, including the ice rink surface and the players’ uniforms and helmets.
In addition to football and ice hockey, NEXEN TIRE also sponsors global motorsport events.
NEXEN TIRE is an official sponsor of Formula Drift, America’s foremost drift competition, and we also sponsor some of the best race car drivers in the world, including Fredric Aasbo who won the world championship in the 2015 Formula D season and Chris Forsberg who has three championships under his belt.
All of these drivers enter the race track with NEXEN TIRE’s dedicated racing tire N’FERA SUR4G. In the recently concluded 2018 Formula Drift season, NEXEN TIRE-sponsored Frederic Aasbo finished No. 2.
In Germany, we sponsor teams attending the 24 Hours Nurburgring, the country’s most popular motorsport competition held on the Nurburgring circuit. The 24 Hours Nurburgring is a competition enjoying worldwide fame. It is one of the world’s top 3 endurance races, and the participating drivers compete for the championship title on a circuit as long as 25.4km for 24 hours.
Through the Porsche 718 Cayman which raced in the tournament, NEXEN TIRE tested the endurance of our tires in the competition that lasted an entire day.
Going beyond the automobile and tire industries, NEXEN TIRE actively supports a variety of sports teams to communicate with our customers around the world more closely.
