LIVERPOOL REDS The New Liverpo The new Liverpool remade to be more Boston friendly. It w amongst the other M Are You Ready? LIVERPOOL REDS Brand Strategy Liverpool Brand Experience Liverpool is a brand that is built on heritage and success in the sport of soccer. It is also a brand that comes from a different cultural background then that of the US, and this is what I’ve based the Liverpool brand experience on. Using youtube shorts debuting on the big screen at Fenway park people will be informed of the arrival of Liverpool to Boston through humor about something they all live and know, accents and lingo. These shorts also found on Youtube will lead viewers to a downloadable mobile app that allows them to play and learn about the funny differences of our cultures and help them “get ready” for Liverpool’s arrival. Finally all experiences will culminate into a enormous cultural event, a soccer game at Fenway Park and the bar takeover of soccer fans all over Boston. The Bar Experience will be sponsored by Sam Adams Beer Company through the debut of their limited edition beer Liverpool Red Ale at Fenway Park during the game and at participating bars in the area. Special commemorative glasses will be sold at the bar with purchase of a Liverpool Red Ale. Target Audience 18-35 year old Males Tim is a 26 year old who lives in a suburb of Boston. He went to college out of state, but still represented his home team everywhere he went. His Grandfather is a Boston fan, his Father is a Boston fan, his Mother is a Boston fan and his brother is a Boston fan.

Cities for Launch Boston, MA Fenway Park June 30th, 2012 The Liverpool Reds Boston VS. The La Galaxy in a exhibition match. Timeline May 30th - June 30th Motivating Theme The motivating theme of this brand experience is about getting ready for the arrival of the Liverpool soccer team. Boston is going to be Liverpool’s new home and Boston wants to make them feel comfortable and at home. Tone of Brand The tone of this brand historical, and successful, but also fun, humorous, and exciting. Whether people attend the game itself or just get caught up in the surrounding excitement they will leave with an understanding of what Liverpool soccer is all about. Message/Tagline Are You Ready? Media for Launch Youtube/TV commercials, Mobile App, and a large event at Fenway Park Lifespan of campaign The campaign will begin May 30th at a Red Sox home game against the Detroit Tigers with the debut of all three Youtube shorts shown on the jumbotron. The campaign will reach itâ€™s peak on June 30th with the Liverpool/La Galaxy game at Fenway. Then the Campaign will continue with the distribution of Samuel Adams Liverpool Red Ale throughout the state until the end of the Summer. Campaign Summary The Campaign can be summed up by comparing it to a journey for the people of Boston leading them into the arrival of Liverpool at Fenway Park June 30th. This journey will firstly inform them about the arrival of Liverpool through the use of the Youtube Shorts. Then the Mobile app will teach and prepare them for the arrival, and finally the Fenway and bar experience will help them celebrate Liverpoolâ€™s arrival. Business Objectives The Objective of this campaign is to introduce the Liverpool brand to the American market and gain awareness of their new presence in the MLS.
