VideoGenie teams up with Bridgestone around the Copa Libertadores!
The VideoGenie Team brings its steez to South America! But seriously. We teamed up with Bridgestone to empower Soccer super fans throughout South America to share their passion of the beautiful game for a chance to win a free trip to see their favorite team in action at the Copa Libertadores. We worked with the local Bridgestone teams in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and the Central America region around this glorious fútbol cup.
A little background on the Copa Libertadores:
The Copa Libertadores de América, commonly referred to as the Libertadores de América or simply Copa Libertadores is an annual international club football competition organized by CONMEBOL since 1960. It is the most prestigious club competition in South American football and one of the most watched events in the world, broadcast in 135 nations worldwide. It is currently sponsored by Bridgestone and thus officially known as the Copa Bridgestone Libertadores. The tournament is named in honor of the Libertadores (Portuguese and Spanish for Liberators), the main leaders of the South American wars of independence, so a literal translation of its name into English would be the “Liberators of Americas Cup”. (Wikipedia)
The excitement down there around their futbol is contagious, and trust me – after watching some of these super fans exclaim their passion on video, and give their best attempt of color-commentating some of the action, there’s no doubt that fútbol (or soccer for us American folk) is no joking matter to the south of us.
We’re thrilled to work together with Bridgestone on behalf of the beautiful game, and hope to continue our efforts down in the South American market. If you’re interested in learning more about the Copa Libertadores, you should definitely scout the action at http://www.bridgestonelibertadores.com/
