OPPO today announced that Ricardo Izecson Dos Santos Leite, better known as Kaká, will be the official Global Brand Ambassador for its partnership with the UEFA Champions League.
As a former FIFA World Player of the Year and winner of the Ballon d’Or, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA World Cup, and much more, Kaká is an icon in the world of football and one of the most decorated players of his era at both the club and international level.
Together with OPPO, Kaká will return to the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, where the Miracle of Istanbul occurred in 2005. With Kaká’s presence, OPPO looks forward to celebrating the 2023 UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul alongside fans worldwide.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kaká as OPPO Global Brand Ambassador for the UEFA Champions League 2022-23 season,” said Elvis Zhou, OPPO Overseas CMO. “Partnering with a global sporting event of the caliber of the UEFA Champions League gives OPPO an unrivaled opportunity to share our mutual spirit of inspiration with audiences around the world. We believe miracles don’t just happen, they are made of expertise and perseverance. With Kaká, the witness and creator of miracles, joining the OPPO squad this year, we will be better positioned to communicate and engage with our global fans while inspiring them to enjoy, experience, and share miracle moments from their favorite football matches.”
“OPPO’s spirit of ‘Inspiration Ahead’ is the same spirit that lies at the heart of every athlete’s ambition to achieve greatness in the face of adversity,” said Kaká. “As a big technology fan, I’m excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with a global technology leader like OPPO to further connect and inspire football fans around the world during this year’s competition, and witness more miracles together.”
OPPO Global Brand Ambassador Kaká has exciting plans ahead, including visits to Jakarta, Indonesia on June 3rd and Beijing, China on June 5th for a series of OPPO activities.
