Heinz BIG Soup partnership enhances Super League’s profile

Super League are delighted to announce that Heinz BIG Soup, one of the UK’s most recognisable consumer brands, has extended its partnership with Super League for the 2013 season.

Heinz BIG Soup is already an established presence within Rugby League and this latest agreement sees the brand featuring prominently on matchday perimeter advertising hoardings and on the sleeves of all 14 Super League clubs’ playing jerseys, as well as adorning Super League’s match balls. The partnership will also be used to support the expansion of the Heinz BIG brand, with a range of Frozen Ready Meals which were launched back in September 2012.

Heinz BIG Soup has outlined its commitment this year to maximising awareness of Rugby League outside of the sport’s traditional strongholds and plans a series of exciting experiential and national media campaigns involving some of Super League’s most talented stars to help engage new supporters. Innovative media tie-ups with talkSPORT, the UK’s biggest national commercial sports radio station, and Sport, the most-read sport magazine in the UK with a weekly circulation of more than 300,000, will support Super League’s own plans to grow the game.

The commitment to the professional game is also underpinned by Heinz BIG Soup’s continuing support of the development of the sport at the grassroots level with another season of investment in the National Youth League.

RFL Commercial Director James Mercer said: “We are very pleased to have Heinz BIG Soup on board for 2013 in what promises to be an extraordinary year for Super League and Rugby League in general. There is already a huge awareness of Heinz BIG within Rugby League following their successful association with Super League through the ‘BIG Soup’ brand in 2012 and we are confident that we will see that awareness enhanced further in 2013. We have built a strong relationship with Heinz BIG Soup since they first got involved and we look forward to working closely with them to strengthen that partnership during the next year.”

Chris Nunn, Senior Brand Manager, Heinz BIG Soup said: “After a successful year of sponsorship in 2012, Heinz BIG Soup is looking forward to being a proud supporter of the Super League 2013 season during such a special year for the sport. We have been working hard over the winter break to make sure that we bring Super League fans a full-on Heinz BIG Soup experience for 2013, including signing national media partnerships and a BIG new and interactive campaign which will be launched with some well-known Super League faces in February –watch this space!”

A few years ago when talksport was known as talkradio Steveo used to have his own 1 hour weekly show and they used to do live coverage of super league games.

Is this some London thing where they talk about women's korfball and how it's a disgrace the BBC aren't covering the European Handball Championship qualifiers live?

I'm not a big Talksport fan, but I certainly could become one if they had some rugby league on it. I'm interested in seeing what they've got planned.

No, it's the thing that's distributed at stations that manages to cover and promote every other sport but rugby league.

Being in Belgobelgoland you're a little out of date these days.

The country will come to a standstill tonight when Slovenia play Spain for the right to play either Croatia or Denmark in the final.

Good news - like the talk of helping to increase exposure - this can only be a good thing.

The country of Slovenia, presumably.

:D Both main streets will be deserted.

(Apparently 50% of the population watched the quarter final v Russia, assuming Google Translate is broadly right).

I wonder if the tie-ups with talkSPORT have anything to do with Moz D leaving

Slightly OT - but when I was in a bar in Paris last Sunday, I was surprised how loud it was with people watching a Handball game live on TV.

Seemed quite exciting when watching it with plenty others getting into it. Don't ask me anything about it - I was drunk.

It's good to get some Souper news rather than a report of another RL team being in the soup.
