Team Vitality and ALDI France are simultaneously opening a new chapter in their history by signing an unprecedented three-year partnership. The French leader in esports and one of the leading players in mass-market discount retailing are thus joining forces by way of an innovative collaboration for the two brands, which are taking their first steps together in a hitherto unexplored sector.
The partnership, signed through the agency Seven by You First Sports, is Team Vitality’s first ever partnership in the mass distribution sector. In line with all the prestigious brands with which it is forging links, the European professional club has decided to take the plunge with a prominent player, faithful to its values, including the quest for performance.
Indeed, ALDI France works to promote a healthy and varied diet. This is a particularly important aspect to consider in the daily life of a Team Vitality professional athlete, in the hopes of reaching the highest level of play. ALDI France also aspires to make this approach simple and accessible to all, which will eventually allow to extend this good practice to all players, whatever their level.
The improvement of the everyday life of Team Vitality athletes and the deployment of these benefits to all esports practitioners in France and Europe are the two main benefits of this collaboration, which will allow this partnership to extend far beyond its initial framework. This is a great way for ALDI France and Team Vitality to show their determination to share their expertise with as many people as possible.
The partnership will also enable ALDI France to benefit from high visibility on Team Vitality’s various communication channels as well as on the jersey sleeve of the teams playing Fortnite, Fifa and in the LFL, the French League of Legends championship.
“Team Vitality is delighted to partner with ALDI. The group’s impressive growth in its sector is reminiscent of Team Vitality’s trajectory in esports, and ALDI’s desire to promote healthy and varied nutrition for all echoes the constant search for performance within our teams. Some great stories and activations will inevitably arise from this collaboration.” comments Nicolas Maurer, Managing Director of Team Vitality.
“It was clear to us that Team Vitality was to be part of our esports partnership platform. We are very proud to be associated with this essential team composed of over 40 top athletes! At ALDI France we really want to work towards a common goal. To assist these players in their healthy lifestyle, through programmes and actions designed to support them in competition. This is an opportunity for all of us to make a long-term commitment and to promote the link between nutrition and the practice of esports.” explains Aurélie TAUDE, Marketing and Communication Director at ALDI France.
For Quentin Bravet and François Gandolfi, co-founders and Associate Directors of the Seven by You First Sports Agency: “We are very pleased to have partnered ALDI with Team Vitality for the next three years and look forward to launching the ‘eat healthy’ activation programme for players and fans”.
