Woolworths launches Commonwealth Games marketing
An example of Woolworths' new Grown for Gold marketing
Woolworths has launched a new marketing campaign centred around its sponsorship of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
The new Grown for Gold campaign will draw parallels between quality Australian produce and how it helped grow some of the country’s best athletes.
Athletes including Kurt Fearnley and Georgia Sheehan will feature in the campaign.
Woolworths Director of Marketing, Andrew Hicks, said Grown for Gold is an authentic, emotional look into the lives of Australian athletes.
“It showcases where they’ve grown up, the people that have moulded them and the food that has fuelled them to make them into the great sportspeople that they are today,” Hicks said.
“As the proud Fresh Partner of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, we’re ready to cheer on our Aussie athletes and fuel our country with fresh fruit and vegetables that have been proudly grown for gold.”
Grown for Gold will use TV, digital, radio, in-store, out of home, catalogue, PR and social platforms. Woolworths has also decorated a Gold Coast tram that visitors to the “Green and Gold Coast.”
The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will be held between 4 April – 15 April 2018.
