Motorway to sponsor BT Sport’s broadcast coverage of the Premier League and UEFA Europa League
Motorway, the UK’s fastest growing used car marketplace will co-sponsor BT’s broadcast coverage of the Premier League, the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The sponsorship agreement brokered by Motorway’s media agency, MG OMD, and Sky Media, will span 127 live games across BT Sport’s coverage of the 2022 / 2023 season with the first game on the 6th August. The sponsorship will include a comprehensive activation package, including a series of whistle to whistle 5 and 10 second idents before games, during half-time and after games, as well as sponsorship across live streams through the BT Sport App and BT Sport website.
Motorway’s partnership with BT Sport is projected to reach 19% (5.696m) of the ABC1 audience and marks Motorway’s second major sponsorship of live sports coverage, following their recent sponsorship of the Guinness Six Nations coverage across 2022 and 2023.
Lloyd Page, CMO at Motorway, said: “We’re proud to partner with BT Sport and to play a role in bringing not just the beautiful game, but some of the most exciting football leagues in the world, to millions of football fans via our sponsorship of BT’s coverage of the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League. With record numbers of motorists selling their cars online through Motorway this year, this sponsorship gives us an incredible opportunity to continue driving awareness of our platform – and help even more car owners sell their cars 100% online for a great price, to our nationwide network of thousands of dealers.”
Jeremy Rosenberg, Account Director, Advertising Partnerships BT Sport said: “We are delighted that through our work with Sky Media, we have partnered with Motorway to sponsor on BT Sport the broadcast coverage of the Premier League, the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League. It is fantastic to have a new brand to partner across our channels.”
