BREAKING NEWS: Samsung Signs Cahill To Spearhead TV Assault
In a bold move that could seriously rattle World Cup sponsor Hisense, Samsung has signed up Australian soccer hero Tim Cahill to spearhead a major TV campaign .
The Socceroos and Millwall striker is a household favourite which has not gone unnoticed at Samsung who while not being an offical World Cup sponsor is going to get in on the action, by sponsoring Cahill who is set to be one of the most popular players going to the World Cup.
New Socceroos coach Bert Van Marwijk announced his preliminary World Cup squad on Monday, selecting 32 players that will eventually be wittled down to 23 for the tournament in Russia beginning next month.
Cahill was on of those players named, keeping his hopes of appearing, and possibly scoring, in four World Cups alive.
As one observer said, “Australians will get behind the Australian team for the World Cup but If you asked most Australians to name players the first name is most likely to be Tim Cahill”.
Chinese brand Hisense who are desperately trying to be seen as a premium brand and recently lifted their prices by up to 16% in an effort to create the perception of quality has invested millions in worldwide sponsorship rights for the 2018 World Cup.
ChannelNews understands that Cahill will not only be an Ambassador for Samsung during the World Cup, but he appears front and centre in a TV commercial for Samsung’s 2018 TV Range which are seen as having superior processors for watching sports over several other brands being sold in Australian.
