This sports sponsorship marks MANSCAPED’s second in the United Kingdom (UK), adding to the palpable buzz surrounding the brand’s impactful launch in the region earlier this year. Previously announced partnerships featured around the globe include UFC®, San Francisco 49ers, NASCAR, Los Angeles Kings, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Sydney Roosters ― to name a few.
"We are seeing strong metrics coming out of Scotland and knew we wanted to have a presence in the Scottish Premiership," said Joey Kovac, Senior Director of Marketing at MANSCAPED. "As we scout out the right partners, we look for organizations that genuinely embrace our brand. We’re happy to have found just that in Hibernian."
"We’re delighted to add MANSCAPED to our growing partnership family," said Murray Milligen, Hibernian’s Commercial Manager. "As a club, it’s our first male grooming partnership, and it’s great to work with such an ambitious company with a global outlook. We look forward to helping them grow their brand in the UK."
MANSCAPED has already taken the field, as seen in Hibernian’s home match last Sunday where the number-three ranked team secured a 2 - 2 tie against the number-one ranked Rangers. With LED and TV-arc logo placement around Hibernian’s Easter Road home turf - the historic 20,421 all seater stadium in Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh - MANSCAPED made a splash in front of an array of socially distanced spectators. Further, Hibernian matches are broadcasted by BT Sport, Sky Sports, and Hibs TV, offering significant added exposure for the partnership to shine and get in front of fans all over. Finally, a series of social media activations will keep the combined fanbase engaged throughout the season.
"Sport is an integral part of the MANSCAPED marketing strategy, with them already working with global sporting brands, so I’m honored they’ve chosen Hibernian as the first club to work with here in Scotland. It’s testament to our appeal as a club," Murray added.
Hibernian’s next home game on October 2nd versus Hamilton will be the next highly visual display of the partnership. Tune in ahead of this match as Hibernian faces current Scottish Premiership champs Celtic on Sunday, Sept. 27th, with added mojo from MANSCAPED on their side.
